Workonline is one of the largest IP transit networks in Africa. Founded by Ben Maddison and Edward Lawrence in 2006, the business has grown significantly to meet the growing demand for wholesale connectivity services across the African continent.

Our customers include some of the world’s largest carriers, Internet Service Providers, Content Distribution Networks and Mobile Network Operators. We pride ourselves on the stability and resilience of our global network, which we operate according to the highest standards across multiple points of presence (PoPs). Whilst we are large enough to ensure consistent reliability and innovation, we remain small enough to adapt to specific market requirements. Our services are delivered according to global best practices.

As a trusted advisor to our clients, innovation and agility remain at the core of our business. Designing innovative commercial and technical solutions has given us the edge and led to our exponential growth over the last decade.

The combination of our strong partnerships and our highly skilled and experienced engineers allows us to remain a leader in the provision of reliable tailormade communication services.

Our research and development is constantly in motion providing our clients with innovative and cost-effective solutions on a global scale while maintaining the highest levels of design, build and deployment.

“To be the most valued and trusted provider of communication solutions to our clients and business partners.”
