Smart Bridges Partner with Zen Internet
Like so many good ideas, it started in a pub…
In 1995 – after that flash of barroom inspiration – Zen Internet amounted to just Richard Tang, his kitchen table, and six customers sharing 64Kbps of dial-up bandwidth. Things have certainly changed since then, but Richard’s people-first approach to business, and his commitment to creating a company that is both ethical and profitable remain. Today Zen Internet partners with Smart Bridges Group Limited.
Over the last 23 years, Zen Internet has grown from a pioneering ISP into a company that provides the full range of data, voice and hosting services to business and residential customers across the UK, giving them the capabilities they need to communicate, collaborate and pursue their long-term goals.
We offer a full range of fast, super-fast and ultrafast broadband packages, with a range of data usage packages, which include a static IP address, free market-leading FRITZ! Box router and our multi award-winning service and support as standard.
Whatever your network and connectivity needs, our business-ready services will provide the perfect solution. We offer a full range of Fast, Super-fast and Ultrafast broadband solutions, Ethernet leased lines and MPLS IP VPNs to keep even the largest businesses connected.
Let us guide you through a world of cloud, from secure hosting to applications, backup, disaster recovery and more. From our own Zen Cloud service to AWS, Office 365 and a range of related cloud and hosting solutions, we will help you make the right choice.
Stay in touch with a range of traditional and flexible state of the art voice solutions backed by award-winning service, for businesses of all sizes. We offer a host of services from traditional lines to ISDN, SIP trunking and cloud-based Hosted Voice.
In 2016, 2017 and 2018 we were again named a Which? Recommended Provider, and we have now won 15 consecutive PC Pro Best Broadband awards. Broadband Genie’s annual business broadband report named Zen their top rated provider in September 2016.
Early 2017 saw the culmination of Zen’s million-pound network investment, dubbed ‘project plexus’. A complete rebuild of our core infrastructure using industry-leading Huawei technology has created a network with vastly increased capacity, much better fault tolerance and major performance efficiencies.
We’ve also doubled our number of Ethernet-enabled Points of Presence (PoPs) in BT exchanges (to 400), giving us by far the largest on-net presence of any independent connectivity provider in the UK.
With nearly 500 employees, over 100,000 customers, and a brand new next-generation network, for Zen the future is bright.
Smart Bridges are delighted to bring this business partnership together and help build the business even further.
