Following on from the success of coming second in VSG’s 2020 Ethernet Leaderboard, Colt has continued its streak of claiming silver in this year’s leaderboard too – maintaining the position consistently since 2018.

The analysts focus on the telecommunications industry, setting the industry benchmark by ranking network providers that own at least 4% of billable retail ports outside of their respective home countries.

Last year showed that the effects of the pandemic have irreversibly changed how we work. Scalable bandwidth has become commonplace as enterprises collaborate across borders and oceans. At the same time, businesses continue to invest in systems which enable hybrid working – a trend that increases in popularity year on year. As the world becomes more reliant on systems like SD WAN and utilises on-demand connectivity, it is rewarding to know that customers and industry analysts consider Colt one of the industry’s most valued partners.

From Oslo to Osaka, from London to Los Angeles, our ethernet service reaches 32 countries across the globe that connects 212 cities worldwide. Our customers can choose between point-to-point or multisite solutions, knowing whichever option they choose is cost-efficient, reliable and secure. We are Gold and Premium Partners with all major cloud providers, connecting to 90% of the market, and by owning all of our own network we can ensure that its quality is always of the highest standard.

Coming second in this year’s Global Ethernet Leaderboard contributes to over 50 industry accolades that Colt has received in the connectivity sector, including recognition from MEF, Gartner and the GLOTEL Awards.
