HKCOLO.NET has officially welcomed HKIX to the HKIX5 site in its advanced Telehouse Hong Kong Cloud Computing Complex.

HKIX is an Internet exchange point based in Hong Kong and is one of the largest Internet exchange points in the Asia Pacific region.

Andrew Pang, Managing Director, HKCOLO.NET, says they are extremely pleased to welcome HKIX to their facility.

"Both HKIX and our customers can now enjoy cross connects in a speedy and economical way. Local loops to HKIX from our facility will no longer be a concern and connection can be done within a day instead of within a month," he explains.

"Data center services in our facility provided by a TIA Tier 4 / Rated 4 operator with connectivity implemented by the largest internet exchange operator in Asia means customers in the facility will be enjoying the most reliable services in a place of great business," he explains.
