Level 3 has announced a connection into a newly refurbished London data centre to enable fast connectivity for small and medium businesses.

The development enables London Data Exchange (LDeX) customers the ability to connect to Level 3’s network spanning over 45 countries and 450 cities worldwide. The facility it said to be focused specifically on the SME sector, to provide fibre based connectivity across the world.

Connectivity into London offers enterprises access to critical data according to Level 3, and the point of direct access at LDeX offers customers a platform to build on data centre connectivity across global and European markets.
