Want to move huge data volumes quickly and securely?

High Capacity Services (HCS) could be your answer. We build a fixed network path with dedicated bandwidth to enable a super fast high capacity point-to-point connection.

So whether you're connecting to a data centre or extending your own network, HCS will get your data moving quickly and securely - all at a highly competitive price.

 
 
 
 
 
 

National HCS

 
 

National HCS connects your sites with multiple services throughout the UK and with no distance limitation via our nationwide network at speeds up to 100Gbps.

We have an extensive national network and access to many of the UK's leading data centres and cloud hosting facilities, so we're ready to connect your business whenever you are.

Dedicated HCS

If you need multiple high bandwidth, low latency services between two sites within 100km of each other, we can design and build a dedicated HCS solution to meet your needs. We use wave division multiplexing (WDM) technology to maximise the scalability of the dedicated fibre and equipment.

You can choose from an array of managed service protocols, speeds, filter port density…the list goes on. With Flexi Filter you can tap in to spare filters, light up additional services yourself and scale your network when your business needs at no extra cost.
