Travellers may use TeleAdapt’s products to access the internet from their laptops while staying in hotels such as the Hilton. Founded in 1992 by Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt says it helped pioneer the modem adapters that made overseas dial-up connections possible. The London firm’s wired and wireless internet systems, audio technology and clock radios can now be found in more than 2m hotel rooms worldwide. It also sells products such as a folding pin plug for travellers. With operations in America, Hong Kong, China, UAE, Singapore and Korea, international sales have grown 70% a year from £3.9m in 2007 to £11.3m in 2009.
