Rack Centre has announced that Coollink.ng, one of Nigeria’s leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) has established a presence in its data centre in Oregun, Lagos.
The partnership will enable Coollink provide colocation and ISP services from Rack Centre’s carrier neutral Tier III data centre and further cement Rack Centre’s position as the true home of Nigeria’s Internet.
Announcing the new development, the Chief Operating Officer of Coollink, Nadim Chidiac, said the Coollink would also connect directly to Internet Xchange Point of Nigeria (IXPN), Nigeria’s only Internet Exchange which is based at Rack Centre premises.
“Coollink have a long history of providing our valued customers with high quality, reliable internet services. We chose Rack Centre to expand our business, since we needed a company that matches our levels of customer service and understands the need for reliability. We investigated the market and Rack Centre has proven itself with nearly two years of uninterrupted service provision, superior customer service and commitment to excellence. Coollink has great plans for the expanding product portfolio and adding additional value onto services we provide for our existing and new clients. These include Virtual Hosting, Virtual and Dedicated Servers and Storage, Hosted PBX, and Video Conference on Demand,” Chidiac said.
Business Development Director of Rack Centre, Howard Pheby, said:
“It is a great privilege to be chosen by Coollink to provide the facility for their Internet and colocation services. The establishment of IXPN at Rack Centre, Nigeria’s only Internet Exchange, is providing leading ISP’s such a Coollink the opportunity to base themselves at Rack Centre’s state of the art facility and directly peer at IXPN with other service providers, lowering the latency and cost of internet provision to the country.
Coollink has a deep understanding of the internet market in Nigeria and we look forward to helping them provide additional services to their impressive customer base.”
