Connectus joins Guerilla ICT to bring clarity and cost-effective IT solutions

Connectus is joining forces with disruptive start-up Guerilla ICT to deliver ultrafast broadband, telephony, IT and cyber security services to SME and enterprise customers across the Midlands in a new way.

Guerilla ICT, brainchild of industry veteran Craig Hall, aims to provide a no-nonsense straightforward and cost effective raft of IT and communication services, helping businesses to mitigate cost complexity, unfathomable contracts and risk.

Hall says he has launched his new company after 25 years of frustration with big industry players, and the way they sold their technology – locking businesses into inappropriate packages at great cost.

The fundamental Guerilla difference is that companies are advised firstly how to save money, and secondly how to make best use of appropriate technology, rather than being strong armed

into ‘one-size fits all’ packages.

Craig Hall became aware of Connectus through a connection with company investor and Connectus sister company DropJaw Ventures. After discussions with the owners, he knew Connectus shared his strong customer care philosophy and desire to push the right technology to market. “As soon as Guerilla ICT became a reality, it was inevitable that the partnership would happen,” says Craig.

Hall and his team can help companies extricate themselves from existing contracts and then offer a bespoke equipment leasing plan, allowing companies the flexibility of growing their technology backbone as the business grows. Being vendor agnostic, Guerilla’s partnership with Connectus is a no-brainer.

“Connectus shares our vision of honest, straightforward technology solutions – you might say we are bringing old fashioned values to 21st century bleeding edge technology,” explains Hall.

The maverick managing director of Derby-headquartered Guerilla ICT says “I am delighted to have a flexible partnership with Connectus for the main strands of our supply chain. The Connectus team will help us deliver the desired outcomes for all our clients, current and future.”

Speaking of the new partnership, Andy Marsden, Group Business Development Director, Connectus, says: “Connectus is delighted to be working with Guerilla IT to enable us to deliver a suite of managed services to SME and Enterprise customers via our well-renowned and established ‘Connect, Protect and Collaborate’ model. This is a complete white label solution to assist Guerilla in its ambitious growth plans.”

Connectus’ Connect, Protect and Collaborate model encompasses a blend of fully managed services to protect businesses, enable them to scale, and create sustainable competitive advantage.

Connectus brings a range of services covering connectivity, network and cybersecurity, voice, IT support and data storage and backup to leading organisations across the North East and Midlands.

Guerilla ICT brings high-speed fibre broadband to Walsall

Disruptive start-up launches a broadband revolution in the West Midlands

Digital disruptors Guerilla ICT – a leading provider of straightforward, cost-effective IT and communication services – is launching a connectivity revolution in Walsall.

As part of its mission to improve outcomes for UK businesses, Guerilla ICT is partnering with some of the UK’s most innovative alternative network (Alt Net) providers, which deliver high-speed fibre broadband where there is no current solution; all within a budget acceptable to most SME companies.

Company founder and Managing Director Craig Hall says:

Guerilla ICT is thrilled to announce the location of our first revolution. We have parked our tanks on the lawns of Walsall WS9 Business District. This disruptive technology is changing what can be delivered to businesses. It’s a bold step in breaking the monopoly of overpriced, low-speed connectivity that has dominated the UK business scene for too long.

We have chosen Walsall because our partners have new infrastructure on the estate that shakes up what is available to the businesses. The new infrastructure allows us to offer up to 1Gb, full fibre broadband, or reduced speeds to fit most budgets.

The district has street cabinets installed that take over local BT ducts, connecting businesses to the blazing speeds of the new provider’s core network – instead of relying on BT to deliver what is needed. 

Guerilla ICT will work closely with each company in the district to provide faster broadband, whilst helping locate savings around current communication costs.

Guerilla ICT’s no-nonsense approach includes a ‘Cup of Tea’ challenge – where, in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea, a member of the team (yes, a Guerilla) can ascertain cost savings for your business. Guerilla ICT’s business-changing technology is now available in Empire Business Park, Northgate, Brickyard Road, Merchants Way, Westgate Park, Stubbers Green Road, Anchor Brook Industrial Estate, Beecham Close and surrounding roads.
