We’re delighted to announce that Melbourne is in The Loop. We’re now part of the dedicated high speed dark fibre network that delivers ultra-fast Internet access to businesses across Manchester.

The Loop is the fibre optic network owned by Gamma that runs for more than 120km beneath the city’s streets. It links the main commercial districts in Manchester with key carrier-neutral data centres via tens of thousands of metres of underground optical fibre.

Our two Manchester data centre facilities at Manchester’s Techno Park, Turing House and Reynolds House, are now part of this city-wide network. For businesses located in Manchester we can provide a fast, direct connection to the Internet while for businesses elsewhere, such as London, we can offer the quickest connection via The Loop and our parent company iomart’s UK-wide dark fibre network to your regional offices in the city.

Matthew Parker, Sales Director for iomart, Melbourne’s parent company, said: “Ultra-fast connectivity is the key to business growth. By partnering with The Loop we are offering the lowest latency for businesses in Manchester and those with offices in the city. Combined with access to our wider MPLS fibre network that spans the rest of the U.K. this means data can be transferred at the speeds necessary for the digital age.”

Ashley Griffith, Managing Director of The Loop said: “It’s fantastic to further expand our network and bring our unique offer to Melbourne Server Hosting’s datacentres. The Loop provides a competitive fibre infrastructure alternative for the local market and this new partnership enables Manchester’s business community the opportunity to benefit from additional ultra-fast connectivity.”
