Why Exponential-e?

The Network, the technology and the service



2,800+ companies take Cloud, IT and Network services from Exponential-e. Our fusion of complementary technologies - a carrier-class Network and Cloud infrastructure - means we can deliver enterprise applications at wire speed for a superior end-user experience.


Our Network

The foundation for business communications

The foundation of our business is our carrier-class Fibre Network with a 100Gig Ethernet core built over the last 10 years. It is this Network which underpins the services we deliver - providing solid foundations for corporate Networks, the coverage to reach over 90% of UK businesses and the investments in security and equipment to power these services.

Smart Wires

The Smarter Network Technology

Exponential-e is the UK's pioneer of corporate Networks delivered using Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) technology. VPLS is a Layer 2 Network technology and its advantage over alternative Network technologies is that it allows geographically-diverse locations to connect together as if on the same Local Area Network (LAN).

Our Service

Our roots in Customer Service Excellence

From day 1 of the Exponential-e’s foundation, our focus was about delivering the best Customer Service in the UK. Click below to see an historic overview of how we achieved our current quality of service. Such as a customer satisfaction level of 96% and a Net Promoter score of 40.

Leadership and Applied Innovation

We have built our business with technology firsts; whether building the UK's first VPLS Network or introducing our award-winning Bandwidth Management service. Our ethos is to apply innovation in everything we do to ensure our customers' technology strategies are sustained ahead of the competition.

The expertise we have developed in both Networking and Cloud services is integral to our trusted adviser status with our customers. Each project we undertake makes the best use of the knowledge and expertise within our business.
