Who we are

We’ve taken confident strides to become a new breed of wholesaler to the channel. Now part of CityFibre, we're excited to be a provider giving access to our own full-fibre infrastructure in the ground.

We're bringing CityFibre's full-fibre footprint 'on-net' to give our partners the distinctive opportunity to deliver truly differentiated choice of connectivity to customers using the UK's largest alternative provider of fibre. We're on a mission to accelerate Britain's full-fibre future and we're putting the power in partners' hands to influence the continued rollout of our network. Meanwhile, we continue to provide services that we're already known for from all the major carriers.

When it comes to providing data and voice connectivity services throughout the UK (and sometimes abroad), we’re passionate about delivering straight-forward and positive experiences to our channel partners. We’ve established a reputation for quality and inspire confidence through the excellence of every aspect of our operations; ultimately we aim for you to be 100% satisfied 100% of the time.

What we do

While we sell connectivity, it’s the way that we sell to and support you that’s important to understand. In short, we proactively serve through partnership - making the most of our expertise, our strong influence with carrier relationships and our technically excellent connectivity services to help you serve your customers profitably. We’ll treat you as a unique partner and work hard to make voice and data services easy and stress-free, whether you’re placing and managing new orders, implementing circuits or billing existing connections.

You - our partners - are at the heart of our business. Everything we do has you in mind and every one of our people is responsible for keeping you satisfied. We will be professional and proactive in all of our interactions with you, but we’ll maintain a personal approach as befits a relationship based on partnership. This means that we’ll listen to your needs and satisfy your requirements to the best of our ability to ensure that we build a mutually beneficial relationship.

Not only that, we have everything that you’d expect of a company of our calibre

Over 900 peering relationships across Europe

A drive to embrace new technology (but only where it’s useful)

Who we are

Elsa Chen

Chief Executive Officer

Entanet’s number one fan is a firm believer in the power of positivity,​ so she surrounds herself with people full of it. She’s a self-confessed drinking lightweight who can eat for the country, loves the beauty of languages and wishes she could be fluent in more of them including 'geek' and 'martian'.

Rob Baynes

Chief Operating Officer

Rob is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company. In work he likes metaphors, enthusiasm and helping people develop to excel at what they do. He also likes going to the cinema, cooking and travelling, but his dream life would be to spend his time scuba diving anywhere warm!

Stephen Barclay

Sales Director

Stephen came to Entanet in August 2010 and has been instrumental in driving our sales since. More interestingly, Stephen’s great loves are his family, cricket and food. He hates it when people aren’t genuine and if he could choose any superpower it’d be to predict the future.

René Vergo

Finance Director

A recent newbie to Entanet, René oversees our first class Finance Team, keeping a tight ship and weighing up investment opportunities. Outside of the office René enjoys going on little fun adventures with his family and training for his next marathon.

Steve Lalonde

Chief Technical Officer

The original Entanetter, Steve's been with us since the very start. In the office he speaks 'geek' and oversees the strategic direction of our network capability. Outside, he can be found on the business end of a camera or at the tiller of his narrowboat.

Neil Watson

Head of Service

Neil’s been with Entanet since 2006 and runs our technical support and customer services teams. A real foodie, Neil spends his free time testing out new recipes and hunting out the latest craft beers. If he could discover the secret to anything, it’d be teleportation to make his commute easier!

Darren Farnden

Head of Marketing

With a decade at Entanet under his belt, Darren is one of our longest serving team members. At work he’s responsible for our award winning marketing, while socially Britain’s countryside fuels his passion for motorbikes. He’d like to have met Einstein and believes great friends are the key to a happy life.

Paul Heritage-Redpath

Product Manager

Since February 2012 Paul has been managing the full lifecycle of Entanet’s products, from monitoring the performance of our existing offering to developing new services and retiring old ones. He has a cat called Phoebe, is a self-proclaimed movie-buff and loves long walks in the countryside with his partner.

Mike Bywater

Head of Software Development & IT

Mike oversees our growing development teams, making sure that projects deliver against Entanet's business goals and improve service experience for our partners. Outside the office Mike can be found grappling with Brazilian Jiujitsu, spending time with his family or keeping himself up-to-date with cutting edge development practices and standards.

Tim Roberts

HR Manager

Joined Entanet in August 2014 to head up Entanet's first dedicated Human Resources function. Tim is responsible for driving forwards our employee processes and development opportunities to ensure we can all give our best. In his spare time family, socialising and sampling Indian food keep Tim busy.
