C4L, a leading UK colocation provider, has today announced an extended £2 million hosting contract with TelecityGroup. The deal ensures the continuation of C4L’s long-term partnership with the Group, and enables the company to expand its services at one of the UK’s key data centre locations.
C4L, which provides colocation and connectivity services, has a track record of 100 percent year-on-year growth of its client base of governmental, FTSE 250, and financial institutions, as well as many of the UK’s network carriers. To ensure the continuation of this growth C4L has extended its contract at a crucial part of its data centre network in the UK, TelecityGroup’s carrier-neutral Meridian Gate facility. Located in the centre of the Docklands, Meridian Gate offers direct access to a wide range of major national and international telecoms networks, enabling C4L to provide Tier1 IP Transit services from suppliers such TiNet and NTT.
Matt Hawkins, Managing Director of C4L commented: “TelecityGroup Meridian Gate is located at the heart of the digital economy; our presence in the data centre ensures we can provide extremely low latency IP Transit services, crucial for our customers that require the best possible internet connectivity. We have enjoyed a successful partnership with TelecityGroup since 2001 and therefore have first-hand knowledge of the inherent connectivity, security and resilience its facilities provide. We are experiencing continually strong demand at Meridian Gate so it is really important to have the opportunity to continue our strong relationship with the Group.”

The state-of-the-art infrastructure and connectivity of our facilities is crucial to C4L’s customer offering, and we’re looking forward to aiding the company’s continued expansion in the coming years.”
