RapidSwitch establishes Points of Presence in the United States


UK dedicated server company expands network to North America.

RapidSwitch, the leading European supplier of self-managed dedicated server solutions and part of UK cloud company iomart Group plc, has extended its network into the United States.

RapidSwitch has established Points of Presence (PoPs) in Atlanta, Phoenix, Boston, Los Angeles, Dallas, New Jersey and Chicago, creating a transatlantic network connection for UK customers who require multi-geographic platforms across the globe.


Covering the East and West coasts of the US is of paramount importance for delivering low-latency bandwidth to customers across the whole of the country, which is a far greater challenge than in the UK due to the sheer size difference between the two regions.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, said: "We are now offering a secure inter-linked network connection, primarily for UK customers who want to deliver secure, global platforms without the worry of building relationships with multiple providers in different time zones."

RapidSwitch hosts thousands of servers for a wide range of clients at its UK data centres. It has a reputation for excellence in customer service with technical support provided 24x7x365.

RapidSwitch is part of iomart Group plc which has one of the largest and fastest networks in the UK serving clients include streaming service providers, gaming companies, voice over IPs (VOIP) and global media broadcasters. This national MPLS-enabled network enables private circuits to be provided to customers not only between the datacentre sites but directly to their own locations.
