London is the capital and largest city of England, and the United Kingdom. One of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities, London is at the center of the global financial marketplace and finds itself as the wealthiest metropolis of its size within the European sphere of geography. It’s unique position places it at the top of the interconnection market due to both it’s size and the presence of transatlantic communications infrastructure. Most of the world’s major corporations, as well as most of the UK’s largest companies call London home, making it the ideal market for vast interconnection ecosystems and data centers. Facilities in London focus on financial services, telecommunications, and other major business functions, and our primary PoP in London, located in the east end of the city, is no different. Our UK IP PoP, off of Brick Lane, is where we provide IP Transit, Cloud Services, Peering, and backbone network services to customers from across the US and Europe.
IP Transit services provided in London benefit from a wide variety of direct and indirect peering relationships as well as the presence of a core PoP in the 100Gbps Genesis Adaptive backbone network. Our Cisco and Juniper-powered network interconnects to a number of internet exchanges in the London metro, including the LINX IX, among others, ensuring your network is only one hop away from the vast majority of internet end users.Learn More
As a point of presence for Microsoft’s Azure ExpressRoute, Amazon’s AWS Direct Connect, and Google Cloud’s Cloud Interconnect products, London is an ideal location for securing direct cloud connectivity to any one of the major cloud vendors that power today’s compute workloads. Genesis Adaptive Direct Connect can provide access to most major cloud providers and can facilitate setup of workloads in as little as 5 minutes.Learn More

Dedicated Internet Access provides customers with additional services unavailable to IP Transit customers, including Anycast DNS services, Firewalling and DoS mitigation, and is tailored to networks that don’t necessarily need to transit their own IP addresses.Learn More
