Tempura Communications was founded in the UK in 2002. The company started by specialising in IP infrastructure and telecom links, enabling solutions and providing access to products and services from Tier 1 ISPs; to the reseller channel in the UK and Ireland. Tempura Communications Ireland Ltd was formed in 2011 as a separate business focused and dedicated on the Irish market.
Tempura provided hosting solutions, and data and internet connectivity from inception to present day. Its first vendor partners were BT, EasyNet (Now GTT) and Verizon then Worldcom. In 2006 other ISP relationships were created, plus the addition of VOIP hosted services. ISPs included NTL/Telewest now Virgin, MDNX, Bulldog then Cable & Wireless now Vodafone, KCOM, Global Crossing and others.
Tempura opened an office in Dublin, Ireland in 2010 in Sandyford, and in 2018 moved to the new Skybridge building near Dublin Airport.
