Ethernet Data centres

Ethernet into data centres

New and expanding data centres need reliable fibre connections. Tell us as soon as you can if you need a fibre run, and we’ll get things in place before you’re up and running. 

We have existing duct and fibre at the majority of data centres. This means most orders are “category one”, with an estimated lead time of 10 working days from placing an order to having a working circuit. And you won’t have to pay any excess construction charges.


How to get Ethernet into a data centre

If you’re planning to build or expand a data centre and want an Ethernet connection, please email us. You’ll need to include:

  • details of your plans i.e. new build or expansion
  • data centre size 
  • a summary of your business model 
  • the site address and postcode 
  • your planned start and end dates for the build.

We’re happy to get involved at every stage, whether that’s design and planning, building, running a site or expanding it.


Our Ethernet data centre products deliver multiple high-bandwidth connections from one centre to either another centre or your customer. They use a reliable fibre network, and resilience options are available for all products.
