Telecom Plus PLC is a multi-utility supplier based in the United Kingdom. It supplies gas, electricity, landline, broadband and mobile services to residences and businesses. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange. The company uses a multi-level marketing model to recruit customers and distributors.[2]

History[edit]

The Company was founded in 1996 as a telecommunications business. Its first product, launched in 1997, was a least cost call routing 'Smart Box', a gadget that plugs into a phone socket and then routes the calls to alternative networks at a cheaper rate than British Telecom.[3]

Operations[edit]

The company has three activities:

  • Utility Warehouse operates a full landline telephony service, mobile telephony (using existing BT and the hardware of the T-Mobile & Orange UK networks, now EE), broadband, gas and electricity (the company is licensed by OFGEM), and a pre-paid MasterCard (a CashBack card).[4]
  • Telecommunications Management Limited operates a full landline telephony service to small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) customers[5]
  • A 20% share in UK business power supplier Opus Energy.[6]
