Proximity Data Centres – one of the UK’s fastest growing regional Edge colocation data centre providers – has announced Quickline Communications has taken space at its Edge colocation facility in Nottingham to support several high-density racks.     

Proximity’s Nottingham Edge 1 site comprises 33,000 square feet of net technical space across six data halls, an IT load capacity of 4MW supply and multiple high-speed direct fibre connections, including Zayo. 

Quickline is a rapidly growing Yorkshire Internet service provider which specialises in connecting ‘hard-to-reach’ areas, by building a new hybrid infrastructure using a combination of fibre and fixed wireless access networks. The company has impressive plans to bring lightning-fast broadband speeds to over 500,000 homes and businesses in rural communities where a significant digital divide still remains. 

“As we grow and expand, so does our need for fast, secure data,” said Mark Seward, Director of Fixed Wireless Operations for Quickline. “By working with Proximity, we are able to avoid data congestion, reduce latency and delays while keeping 100% integrity of the data.”

“We are delighted to be helping support Quickline Communications’ next phase of growth as it expands coverage of its superfast and ultrafast broadband rural network further across in the UK,” said John Hall, Managing Director – Colocation, Proximity Data Centres.“ Alternate service providers like Quickline increasingly require Edge colocation capacity to better serve their local customers with low latency solutions by bringing data much closer to them – in this case the Midlands region – while also reducing backhaul costs.”
