Easynet is a global managed service provider. Its customers make use of Easynet’s network, hosting and unified communication services to drive forward their organisations and solve specific business issues such as cost management and communication between offices.

Founded in 1994, by David Rowe and Keith Teare, Easynet was owned by British Sky Broadcasting, from 2006 to 2010. In 2010, Easynet announced its sale from BSkyB (Sky) to Lloyds Development Capital (LDC), the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group.

In December 2013 the company was acquired by MDNX Group, the UK's largest independent carrier integrator. Combining these two organisations has created the largest independent network and hosting integrator in Europe, which trades everywhere as Easynet. The acquisition was backed by Equistone Partners Europe Limited, one of Europe’s leading mid-market private equity managers, who hold a majority stake in the organisation. LDC has reinvested in the organisation to acquire a minority stake alongside the MDNX management.

The company is headquartered in Bracknell, United Kingdom, and has offices throughout Europe, Asia Pacific, and the US.
