Carrier neutral colocation

For anyone involved in considering a colocation strategy it’s important to ensure that your data centre partner is carrier neutral. This means that the data centre allows customers to use any carrier or network provider whether the carrier is currently in the data centre or not to come in. Not only does this ensure businesses with a number of connectivity options, but it can greatly enhance the speed and reliability of communications traffic, resulting in faster response times and a better end-user experience.

Alternative carriers

Although we own an extensive network across Europe we understand that customers may prefer to/or can sometimes be obliged to use alternative carriers. This is why we actively promote carriers into all of our data centres. If you would like to find out more about how to connect into one of our data centres get in touch with our team here.
