Them's the breaks ;-)

Well, are far as we can tell this is near enough half price what any other colo company are
offering in Scotland. Flights to London may be cheap but it takes time to get there and respond..

Ahh, the debate may go on for a while if I reply in too much detail. Of course we understand that
whenever you choose a host, you need loads of information on how they operate and knowing a
little more about the environment they run their kit from is also really important.

Essentially we know what we're doing. Our staff have been offering colo to the likes of Freeserve
since the beginning of '97, longer than any other Scottish company. The company we worked for
until 2000 were Telecity's first customer in Scotland and we moved away when they closed the
Scottish facility. Our new facility is ran by a company who run over 125 facilities worldwide and
they have many years of experience. It's also not a few feet away from Scotland's busiest train
