Environment matters

For decades, we’ve been known for delivering exceptional connectivity and original solutions to the best universities and biggest businesses in the country. And, unlike many telecoms giants, we build the cabling infrastructure that makes connecting to our own fibre broadband possible, so you can be sure you're signing up for a bullet- and future-proof service.

Why Glide?

Working with Glide was very easy, they’ve come in with innovative technology and told us the best way to go about the installation process. The systems are cutting edge and are something that Liverpool has never seen.

Daniel Hynd Managing Director of Promenade Estates

We decided we needed a specialist, who could do a quick installation and take responsibility for the service, and particularly for the support of the students. The process was very easy from our point of view.

We are really pleased to work alongside Glide Residential to ensure our residents enjoy superfast broadband. This has already helped us to more effectively market our property and attract new residents

We now have an internet service that is absolutely best in class and is a model that we will look to replicate across our estate
