The company was established in April 2000 by two friends who met in college in the 80's. After losing touch for a couple of years they met again by coincidence and it turned out both had ended up earning their tracks in the telecommunications industry. They decided to go into business together and after careful market research the company concept was developed, a sound business plan written and investors found. Following the successful launch of no frills telecom services in several European countries, in late 2003 the company launched its 1899 Indirect Access service in the United Kingdom in partnership with one of the largest Italian telecom carriers.

Becoming rapidly known as the ‘‘0.5p per minute-carrier’’, 1899.com can offer exceptionally low tariffs due to the use of state of the art technology and a constant focus on lowering the operational costs.
