Redsquid’s 2019 Round Up
As the year comes to a close, it’s time to reflect on yet another year at Redsquid, and what a year it’s been.
Undoubtedly, the biggest news of this year was Redsquid’s acquisition of Ridgeway Telecom – a wholesale provider of Unified Comms, Connectivity, Mobile and Data. Ridgeway have been trading for over twenty years, have a great reputation for customer service, and bring a range of solutions to the Redsquid portfolio. Strategically, this will give a presence in the up and coming Thames Valley region, and double Redsquid’s wholesale billing.
