“I am very excited to light RACK59 with Hilliary’s fibre presence,” said Samual Curtis, managing member of RACK59 Partners. 

“The goal of RACK59 has always been to promote a carrier friendly Internet Exchange Point, while cultivating a free peering environment for all fibre carriers interconnected at RACK59. We believe the cross connect with Hilliary allows business customers in south west Oklahoma access to some of the world’s fastest and most economical bandwidth opportunities the region has ever seen.”

The new collaboration between RACK59, Oklahoma City’s premier colocation data centre, and Hilliary Communications will provide expanded resources to handle the growing bandwidth needs for some of Oklahoma’s fastest growing small markets. 

With the addition of Hilliary Communications in 7725 CONNECT, RACK59 Data Center now boasts one of the state’s densest carrier hotels with 15 On Net providers.

Hilliary Communications is an internet service provider (ISP) offering internet, telephone and TV to consumers and businesses in South Oklahoma and North Texas. Hilliary Communications has been on the leading edge of innovation for more than 50 years and we take pride in building one of Oklahoma's fastest growing fibre networks. 

"We are making strides to connect existing customers and establish new markets the fastest and most economical bandwidth the state can offer. The new PoP within RACK59's 7725 CONNECT is part of Hilliary's long-term strategy to provide Tier 1 network connectivity coupled with superior data centre services to our business customers throughout our service area,” said Edward Hilliary, managing partner of Hilliary Communications.

This connection coupled with our fibre connections in Oklahoma and Texas including PoPs in Tulsa, Lawton, Wichita Falls and Dallas will ensure that our customers will have access to one of the most advanced and reliable networks in the region. The RACK59 PoP also allows our customer the opportunity to capitalize on Hilliary Communication’s alternative route to Dallas from Oklahoma City moving away from the over utilised I35 corridor that the traditional Tier 1 carriers use.”
