As the UK’s most advanced network, we harness innovation, automation and simplicity to provide outstanding wholesale connectivity and cloud solutions. We drive our partners forward, with software defined infrastructure that scales to the evolving demands of their end customers.
As a wholesale-only network provider, we never compete with our partners so we’re laser-focused on their business needs. Unlike most, we put the control of our solutions directly into our partners hands, empowering the channel like never before.
With a network that spans over 300 exchanges, Virtual1 deliver fibre coverage to over 75% of UK businesses directly, with bandwidth ranging from 10Mb up 10Gb+. We also aggregate with 9 Tier One UK networks to provide market-leading coverage across the nation.
Virtual1’s carrier network is fully software defined with all of our key network changes fully automated. What’s more, we place the control of many of these solutions under our partner’s control for them to add to, move or modify their customer’s solutions in real time.
We’re the fastest growing Openreach Ethernet Partner
All solutions using the Virtual network are powered by our strategic partnership with Openreach to deliver the last mile. We’re their fastest growing Ethernet partner with key relationships made at all levels of senior management and active participation in crucial industry forums and the EMP steering committee.
Virtual1 have fully integrated with Openreach for Ethernet ordering, removing any briefcase time. The benefits of the relationships and automation are clear in Virtual1’s performance statistics vs the wider Openreach base—we deliver our services on average 10 working days faster than the market.
Benefit from the reach of the Virtual1 network, combined with the aggregation of 9 other leading UK networks to get market-leading connectivity with a commercially compelling price point.
This is achieved via a single order journey in 1Portal with one dedicated service manager to give partners better control of their solutions.
Our base optimisation process helps our partners simplify their supply chains and reduce costs by:
Transferring billing and service relationships from a mutual network supplier to Virtual1
Transitioning an estate to us, with new solutions installed by Virtual1 to replace any existing
Transforming legacy products to Virtual1 solutions as they come out of existing contracts
With a drive among resellers to create their own SaaS or PaaS solutions using leading vendors from the voice, cyber security desktop and software space, partners can use our IaaS offering, 1Cloud, to host these solutions. Our integrated cloud and network offering is privately connected to leading voice, UC and cloud providers, so our partners can bring in their vendors to devise a high-performing solution with security guaranteed.
Nowadays, workers need to connect to all their business applications and data quickly and securely, from wherever they are. Our home working FTTP and FTTC products deliver this with service monitoring and WiFi included, plus primary and backup cellular solutions for those hard-to-reach locations. We also offer Fortinet Managed SD-WAN and VPN access to optimise and secure network traffic across a range of connectivity solutions.
As a wholesale provider, every product we bring to market is to help resellers grow their portfolios and wallet share. We thoroughly research what our partners and their end customers want to make sure we deliver any new products market-ready. This means that theirs are quick to take to market and highly complement their existing offerings, with the help of training, marketing tools and more.

Sometimes the IT function is a totally thankless task. As a world we are so totally reliant on our IT infrastructure that when there is an issue it creates high stress levels and even panic. IT support is not only about fixing your problems whilst keeping calm, it is also about making the correct infrastructure…
