This London company prides itself on disrupting the network services market. It offers a fibre-based Ethernet service that can transmit video, voice and other data through a single circuit for £800 a month—less than 20% of the standard charge. In addition to its national network, the company also has a direct connection to New York which enables it to provide transatlantic services. With a third of his 500 blue-chip clients in financial services, founder and managing director Lee Wade aims to expand in the financial sector by providing data-feeds and connections to the four new London stock exchanges that will be launched this year. Exponential-e also provides Ethernet services for the All England Tennis Club, which stages the Wimbledon tournament. The company’s sales have risen 59% a year from £2.6m in 2005 to £10.4m in 2008.
