10 Years of SwitchboardFREE

October 14th, 2015

Rewind 10 years to 2005 and the world was quite different.

YouTube was just beginning, it was the year ‘The Facebook’ became just ‘Facebook’, when Microsoft first released the Xbox 360, and the same year Axel F’s Crazy Frog took the world by storm.

Back in 2005, Google had only just acquired Android, most of us watched television largely on an actual TV, and the first generation iPhone didn’t even exist yet.

10 years on, and here in the UK, we’re more mobile, online, and connected than we ever have been before. Superfast internet is taking over, smartphones have surpassed laptops as our device of choice to get online, and we’re even looking at building machines of the future. Cor! A lot can happen in a decade!

Here at SwitchboardFREE, it’s our birthday year and we’re marking over 10 years of providing telephone numbers and call management to businesses.

It all started with just two guys and a big idea back in 2005. The SwitchboardFREE team has grown since then, we’ve learned a lot along the way and we’ve always determinedly stuck to our mission to provide the very best call management available to help companies grow and get the most out of every business opportunity.

With new features already released, and much more to come (watch this space!) there seems no better time to reflect on the last 10 years of SwitchboardFREE. As we do love a good number, here’s the last 10 years in numbers.

Drop us a line for a chat anytime, we’re always here and would love to hear your story too.
