Level 3 launches PoP in Manchester, UK

23 March 2015 |


Level 3 Communications has today revealed the launch of a PoP at LDeX Group’s newest data centre in UK city, Manchester; LDeX2.

Level 3 is the first official on-net CSP to be confirmed at the Manchester co-location facility, and the launch will also enable customers to connect to the Level 3 global network from the LDeX1 facility in London as well as the LDeX2 data centre.

“We are delighted that Level 3 Communications has chosen to deploy a PoP in our second UK data centre LDeX2, which we recently launched in the Trafford Park area,” said Rob Garbutt, CEO at LDeX Group.

“Attracting carriers such as Level 3 to the new site aligns with our strategic plan to be one of the best connected datacentre operators in the UK. This news solidifies our relationship with Level 3 which already provides superior connectivity to our existing customers at LDeX1.”

In March last year, LDeX Group became a member of the Metro2C Alliance; an association of connectivity providers, data centre operators and internet exchanges, working to create solutions for the growth of the digital economy.
