ASK4 is the industry leader in high-speed internet solutions and managed data services for student accommodation.

We are proud of our reputation for consistently successful delivery, and as one of the earliest providers in the sector, we utilise our wealth of experience and expertise to design, develop and implement tailored systems that meet a wide variety of client demands.

In May 2014, ASK4 completed a buyout and refinancing backed by Darwin Private Equity LLP, a UK based firm that invests in high-growth businesses. This investment will support the continued expansion of ASK4 as we strengthen our proposition through the development of our core networks, the introduction of new products and services, the recruitment and training of fantastic staff, and a continued focus on delivering an industry-leading service nationally and internationally.

ASK4 partner with universities, private sector student accommodation providers, residential apartment developers and businesses. We currently serve over 125,000 customers across several hundred sites.

ASK4 is led by Managing Director, Jonathan Burrows, supported by Mark Collins as Financial Director and by Sales Director, Oliver Riddle.

“With demand greater than ever for reliable, high speed internet services, the timing was perfect to bring in external investment. The team at Darwin impressed us with their focus and understanding of our market, and with their backing, we are committed to developing our technology proposition and to delivering a valuable, innovative and quality service for our clients.”
