ASK4 delivers WiFi, broadband and IPTV services to student accommodation buildings, private residential developments and serviced offices from its headquarters in Sheffield where it employs over 100 staff. It also operates a 180-rack tier-two data centre in the city.

ASK4 was founded by Jonathan Burrows in 2000 to provide internet access services to private residential multi-tenant buildings. The firm entered the student accommodation sector in 2005 following the acquisition of Horizon Telecoms, which was established by Jonathan Hudson.

The business, which recorded revenues of £10.2m in 2013, now provides its services to over 100,000 users across the UK. ASK4 works with leading private student accommodation providers, directly with universities and more than 400 businesses.
