10 years Diva - Our top 10 moments
As you may know, we’re celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Diva Telecom.
To mark the occasion, we decided to ask our team what their favourite moments have been over the last 10 years.
Want to know what they came up with?
Here’s our top 10 highlights:
10. Our first major exhibition.
In September 2014, we exhibited at Customer Contact Expo at the London Olympia. This was the first major exhibition Diva Telecom attended as exhibitors, providing the entire team with an exciting and highly memorable experience.
9. Edgar’s article in the Yorkshire Post.
Back in February 2013, Edgar, our Software Developer, spoke with the Yorkshire Post about his hobby of beekeeping. It was a great opportunity for the Leeds business community to learn about the genuine individuals behind Diva Telecom.
Shortly after, Edgar received his Java SE 7 Programmer Certificate from Oracle, which was another fantastic achievement! We were all extremely proud of him.

8. Our move to Glendevon House.
In 2014, the company moved offices to Glendevon House at Hawthorn Park, just off Coal Road. This move marked the start of a thrilling new chapter for Diva Telecom and has played a noteworthy part in our continued success and growth over the past few years.
7. The first Diva website.
After a ton of hard work, the first Diva website went live in 2006 – understandably a milestone achievement for the company.
6. The first Diva baby.
Andrew Myers, our IT Manager, gave us our first Diva baby in 2009. Since then, there have been several more Diva babies, with the latest (the adorable Finley) born on the 1st November 2016.
5. Diva to the rescue.
Like many other rural communities, Eltofts battled with sub-par connectivity until home businesses decided action needed to be taken. Cue Diva. We supplied them with the long-awaited, pure fibre internet connection they’d been hoping for, while the community pulled together to dig out the footings (in true DIY form). Moments like this have a great ‘feel good factor’ for our team, knowing that we’re truly able to make a drastic difference to business communities.
4. Moving from home to our first office.
In early 2008, Diva Telecom made the move from Erica, our Managing Director’s, home into our first business premises. This was a massive step forward for the company and one that will never be forgotten.
3. The first two members of staff.
Diva was founded by Erica Lewis back in 2006. After building the company up by herself, she employed the first two members of the Diva team in 2008, as IT Manager and Operations Manager – the rest is history!
2. Hitting £1 million turnover.
A massive achievement for any start-up! Back in 2008 Diva Telecom hit an annual turnover of £1 million for the first time, an outstanding milestone for the Diva family.
1. Being awarded launch partner status for Gigabit City Leeds.
There have been many great moments at Diva Telecom over the last 10 years, but none could top this. To be able to provide a product that will have such a massive impact on the digital infrastructure in Leeds is an amazing achievement, especially after all the hard work put in by the team to win the partnership with CityFibre.
