London, UK 6th February 2024 – Gamma Communications plc (“Gamma”), a leading technology-based provider of communication services across Europe, announces its strategic acquisition of Coolwave Communications Limited (“Coolwave”), a prominent international SMS and voice services provider. This acquisition highlights Gamma’s efforts to bolster its global presence and enhance its voice services portfolio.
Gamma currently provides UK communication services to a significant number of the world’s UCaaS, CPaaS & CCaaS providers as well as several hyperscalers and this acquisition will enable the delivery of similar services in over 100+ countries. Additionally, this helps accelerate the execution of Gamma’s overall strategy by serving the communication needs of global organisations both large and small, by providing a highly scalable technical footprint.
