Rydal Group was founded in November 2008 by Steffan Dancy. By 2009, we moved into our first offices and recruited 4 staff members, including Steve Watkins – now our Operations Director. By 2013 we launched the partner model for both mobile & fixed services. A year later, due to high demand, Rydal Group entered the VoIP market. Now in 2023, we are one of the leading business Communications, IT, Energy and Security providers.
Looking to switch?
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been with the same broadband provider for a long time. You may have even signed up for your current plan when it was first launched, and now you’re paying more than ever before!
The good news is that broadband prices are changing all the time, which means you could get a much better deal if you switch to a new provider. But just how easy is it to switch broadband? Let Rydal Group show you how simple switching broadband providers can be, as well as what to look out for when making the change.
