The company which is based in Altham, Lancashire-began life as an ISP delivering email and web services. We still offer all of the services typical of an ISP, but have grown our service portfolio to meet increasing demand over time.

Taking transit from four Tier-1 transit providers, and with membership of LINX, LONAP and EdgeIX, we maximise our peering arrangements with other providers, making our network low-latency and highly resilient, providing optimal routing.
