Our Story Begins...
With extensive experience in the telecoms industry Gareth Limpenny established Frequency with three colleagues. His vision was to create a company that excelled in distribution and the objective to simply deliver high quality handsets on time.
In our second year of trading Frequency achieved £9.9 million turnover, securing a deal with O2 to source handsets when no one else could. This success continued into the following year, with turnover reaching £16 million in 2004.
Frequency Launches a New Subsidiary
In 2005 Jelly Communications was born, offering connected mobile phone packages to the B2B SME market.
The Accessories Arrive
With over 15 years telecoms and mobile accessory experience John Willoughby joined the company as Sales Director and was strategic in helping to capitalise on the growing accessory market. With continued expansion we moved into new offices, doubling our premises.
We strategically focused on the expansion of the smartphone market into Europe, recruiting a dedicated multi-lingual international sales team to build pan European distribution channels.
New German and Russian Offices
To support our European expansion, in 2011 we opened offices in Germany and Russia. Meanwhile in the UK, we tripled our office space in a 18,000 square ft new building.

Our Story - In Song!
To celebrate the company's 10th anniversary, Frequency founder and Chief Executive Gareth Limpenny spent an afternoon with musical comedy act Abandoman. After taking just a few notes the band then created this song which tells the story of how Frequency got started and prospered over the past decade.
