"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.
