Throughout this time Colt has been consistent in its execution of global strategy; its expansion of its innovative portfolio of digital infrastructure solutions; and the improvement of its industry-leading customer experience.

Over the past twelve months, we’ve accelerated our global Colt IQ network extension, we’ve expanded our powerful partner ecosystem and have reaffirmed our strong position on ESG – all strategies we believe strongly support our position as a Challenger.”
