A super-fast UK, European and WorldWide network
It's the hub of UK and European internet and where we connect you to every website and internet service in the world, quickly. It's regarded as the UK's primary internet location and home of most major ISP's and financial institutions. Here we connect via multiple Tier 1 backbone providers to the very core of the internet backbone and link directly with the US, Europe, Asia and all over the world.
We partner with companies like Cogent - the world's largest backbone provider with a total worldwide capacity of over 1 Terabyte per second. This gives our mail and broadband users the speed they need to surf all over the world as well as allow worldwide customers to access the sites we host extremely quickly. Much faster in fact than most other ISP's - including the big hosting providers. Our test have shown sites hosted on our network can be anything from 2-5 times faster to load.
Telehouse is the UK's primary datacentre. It's got 24hour, 7 day, 365 day monitoring, power backup, fire-protection, CCTV, access control, full security detail and is permanently chilled to a cool 5 degrees - the perfect temperature for our servers. Located in the Docklands London, it's where all the big ISP's have a presence and is the focal point of the UK's interconnectivity with the rest of the World.
Triple mirroring unlike most major ISP's - the big boys - our small size means we can employ the latest technology and backup procedure. We're unique too in that we provide a complete mirror of our entire mail system rather than just backups. This is a live replication of all of our customers email services to our network in Bristol or Cornwall. Should there be a problem with the servers or Telehouse itself, mail servers are instantly and automatically switched to Bristol or Cornwall. Email sending and delivery therefore continues as normal. We also have this live mirroring on our hosting and broadband systems to prevent downtime. What's more, everything is also incrementally backed up to our NOC for triple backup protection. All bases covered!
