Brillband Raises £660K in Funding


Brillband, a Glasgow, UK-based provider of an app broadband, raised £660K in funding.

Fuel Ventures led the round, along with private investment from industry experts and bankers.

The company plans to use the funds for expansion and launch in the UK.

Brillband, headed by Justin Fielder and Duncan Di Biase, is an app-based broadband provider that allows full-fibre network users to manage their entire broadband service using their mobile phones or tablets. The patent-pending software technology uses the direct connection between the provider and customer to enable the service to build individual usage profiles which automatically optimize the service according to how it’s used, for example for gaming, streaming, working from home, or downloading content.

Brillband’s native consumer-centric features also include 1GB speeds with no entry price points; up-to-the-minute network diagnostics and updates via push notifications; malware detection capability and built-in security software; and round-the-clock access to local customer service teams all at customers’ fingertips.

Brillband – which will be initially rolled out to a test group of hundreds of app and network customers across Glasgow and Renfrewshire later this year – aims to have 10,000 customers and a team of 20 by the end of 2023, rising to 40,000 customers by the end of 2024. Mr Di Biase projects that the firm will reach 120,000 customers by 2025. Vodafone, with 1 million customers, is the UK’s fifth-largest broadband provider.
