Altnets has been supplying independent internet service providers with everything they need for telecoms builds since November 2020. This month, the company launched its brand new website, including its new Product Resource Centre which gives customers access to the biggest range of telecoms products in the UK.
Altnets was launched in 2020 by Co-Founders Paul Britnell and Sam Bangle to support the needs of the UK telecoms market as the nation upgrades to full fibre broadband networks. Altnets exists to support independent internet service providers with all their supply chain requirements, offering all the build materials they need for network infrastructure, from fibre cables, ducts and nodes to access chambers. This month, the company launched its new website to support customers through the entire procurement process.
Paul Britnell, Co-Founder and Director of Altnets, who has over 20 years’ experience in fibre optics and distribution, says:
“We set up the company at the end of 2020 against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit. Although the supply chain industry is still going through a range of challenges, Altnets is all about finding solutions for its customers.
“The company has evolved to focus on supporting the roll out of full fibre networks across the UK. The new website is designed to be a one-stop-shop for independent service providers to find the products they need. Customers can register on the website for free to access our full product range and to set up an audit of their current supply chain with one of our trained specialists.”
The concept behind Altnets is to offer telecoms clients the ‘full package’ – product procurement, supply chain management, planning, forecasting and scheduling. The company’s mission is simple: to improve efficiencies for customers by maximising return on investment and supplying them with the best quality, locally-sourced products.
Paul’s Co-Founder and fellow Director, Sam Bangle, says:
“The feedback we have received from our customers is incredibly positive. We are hoping to build on this through the new website, which really reflects where we are at as a business now. We’ve undergone rapid growth over the past 18 months and built valuable partnerships with some of the world’s leading telecoms manufacturers.
“Once a customer has registered with us via the website they undergo a tailored inventory management service, where we identify any weaknesses in their supply chain or opportunities to improve efficiency (and usually save money). We use our industry experience to provide accurate forecasting and scheduling analytics, cutting out frustrating supply chain issues and guaranteeing customers always know the status of their orders.”
Via Altnets’ website, registered customers are now able to monitor and track the status of their orders 24 hours a day, manage quotes, browse the full product range along with all associated technical information, and access supply chain experts whenever they require support.
Altnets has been shortlisted in Startups Magazine’s Hustle Awards this year for the Top Performing Team Award. The Altnets team assists every customer through their telecoms build journey and are at the heart of the business providing outstanding service from beginning to end.
