A look back on 2021…


A message from Adam Cathcart, Managing Director.

As 2021 draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to reflect on the many positives from throughout the year and to say a huge thank you for your continued Partnership.

Part of the Onecom group

2021 saw the most significant change in our organisational history. In March, 9 became part of the Onecom Group.

Under Onecom’s ownership we look forward to introducing a number of Partner benefits throughout 2022, based on the group’s strong network and carrier relationships and wider support network. The feedback we’ve received from Partners so far has been extremely positive.

2021 snapshot

Supporting Partner growth

The Surf On Your Turf campaign was delivered in conjunction with CityFibre and aimed to support Partners to drive Connectivity sales.

We’re proud to share that the campaign resulted in 9 being recognised as CityFibre’s top performing Partner in 2021, indicating the success and growth of our Partners.

We’re working with CityFibre and other providers to deliver similar initiatives throughout 2022. We’ll share more soon.

New Partnerships and even more choice 

Through our new relationship with Vodafone, this year we launched the first steps of our market leading Connectivity offering, with their SoGEA solution. ADSL, FTTC and FTTP from Vodafone are due to launch in the coming weeks.

Along with a wider range of product and bandwidth options, our partnership with Vodafone enables us to offer extremely competitive pricing. You can read more about the partnership here

A reason to celebrate

We celebrated Christmas early this year with the wider Onecom team at The Ageas Bowl. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to toast our success and to personally thank everyone for another incredible year.

Looking ahead to 2022

2021 has been another year of change, with new ways of working, alongside the continued social impact of the pandemic. Across all industries, organisations have had to adapt faster than ever.

Home working solutions, demand for improved Connectivity and the convergence of IT and telecoms presents our sector with the unique opportunity to support businesses to achieve their goals in 2022 and beyond.

Looking ahead, we predict themes around customer retention and growth opportunities, as we edge closer to 2025 and the WLR withdrawal.

As ever, we are here to support you and your business.


From myself and the entire team at 9’s Partner division, we wish you a very safe and merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We look forward to continuing to support you throughout 2022.
