Our Network

Tier-1 and Tier-2 Internet Service Providers

Wi-Manx connects to a number of Tier-1 and Tier-2 Internet Service Providers in order to achieve the best connectivity possible.

For resilience, we interconnect with our providers in London, Manchester and locally on the Isle of Man.

All of our providers have superb connectivity in the UK, Europe, Asia, USA and throughout the world. We operate a full, multi-homed network using BGP4 operating under AS42455.

Points of Presence

Wi-Manx operates several points of presence, two on the Isle of Man, one in Preston and one in London – this is to achieve site, city and hardware resilience.

All of our POPs feature high performance network hardware from Juniper Networks.

We peer with several global carriers in key locations which enables you to achieve a true global reach.

Our Tier-1 network partners

 Internet Exchange Points

Wi-Manx maintains a low latency network by peering directly with other organisations at Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).

Wherever possible, Wi-Manx are constantly increasing their peer-base. Wi-Manx are currently members of LINX (London) and IXManchester (North West).

It is estimated that 96% of the UK’s internet traffic goes through LINX. Big names such as the BBC, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Yahoo, Microsoft and Akamai are all members of LINX.

Testimonial

We cannot underestimate the importance of reliable and high-speed connectivity to today’s business traveller and the installation of our super-fast dedicated 100 Mbps line from Wi-Manx further positions us as the hotel of choice for island visitors.
