AirSpeed Telecom links directly with London’s LINX exchange

24 Apr 2012

Licensed wireless telecoms provider AirSpeed Telecom has developed a direct link with the London Internet Exchange. The move also allows AirSpeed Telecom to link directly with content-delivery networks like Akami, Limelight, Amazon, Google and the BBC.

AirSpeed Telecom recently upgraded its network to cater for the new IPv6 addressing system which will help customers prepare for the switch from IPv4.

The company says this builds on its ongoing work of dual-stacking its core network with both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing.

AirSpeed Telecom says it has been steadily investing in its network to provide the reach and high bandwidth capacities businesses require now and into the future. 

Some €2.4m has been invested since January 2010 in infrastructure and services as part of its ongoing multimillion-euro investment programme.
