After what the company says is a year of significant milestones, Connected2Fiber is rebranding as Connectbase. The company says the new branding and message reflect the evolution of its growth, as well as its products and services.

The brand is now more aligned with the entire spectrum of network connectivity options, including wireless, copper, coax and fiber.

Automating Connectivity


Connectbase’s Ben Edmond

Ben Edmond is founder and CEO of Connectbase.

“From day one, we set out on a path to catalog the world’s networks with location context and specificity. We created a platform that streamlines and automates connectivity buying and selling,” Edmond said. “Our mission today, as it has always been, is to be the location source of truth for the connectivity industry. That doesn’t mean simply bringing buyers and sellers together. It means doing so on a foundation of detailed, location-specific intelligence, automation and efficiency.”

Connectbase’s SaaS-based platform for network buyers and sellers, The Connected World, manages more than 1.4 billion locations across 147 countries. The product’s buyer cloud enables network providers to identify, manage and quote ideal provider partners for any deal. This helps to mitigate fallout issues that plague more than 20% of all connectivity orders globally. The seller cloud ensures that sellers of connectivity are maximizing opportunities when building capital-intensive networks. The seller cloud also streamlines the sales process to prevent unnecessary costs and lost revenue. The accuracies and efficiencies provided by The Connected World significantly improve overall customer experience, the company said.

$10 Billion in Global Connectivity Spend

“Our rebrand doesn’t mark the completion of the mission; it marks the evolution and doubling down of that mission,” Edmond said. “Today, Connectbase and The Connected World platform are at the center of that location-specific source of truth. It’s home base for connectivity buying and selling.”

Generating millions of quotes per month representing over $10 billion in global connectivity spend, The Connected World has more than 5,800 network service providers mapped by location and more than 16 million tenants displayed by location. With a 108% jump in platform users over the past year, Connectbase now serves hundreds of customers. They include the top 10 fiber infrastructure providers and MSOs in the United States.
