The Broadband Genie team

The original core members of the Broadband Genie team have been together for a decade, helping tens of thousands of people switch or find their first broadband deal.

As Genie has expanded we’ve added experienced experts in every field, from journalism and commercial account managers to web design and programming. And if you want to order your broadband by phone, we also have an Ofcom accredited switching telephone service.

We’ve also been finalists in a slew of awards in recent years, including the Digital Technology Leaders Awards, Amazon Business Awards, British Small Business Awards and Cambridge News Business Awards.
