Brighton Digital Exchange

Fastnet are proud to announce our involvement with the newly formed Brighton Digital Exchange.

The BDX is located within New England House in Brighton to provide ultrafast broadband to small and medium businesses. This Digital Exchange has enabled local tech businesses to pool their resources and invest in shared broadband capacity, enabling them to access high speed connectivity. It will also help Brighton’s tech cluster build a more direct link to London’s Tech City.

The construction of the Digital Exchange has included;

  • The construction of a well-specified hosting facility within New England House, featuring UPS, Standby Power Generation, Cooling.
  • A building-wide fibre cabling rollout, providing simple connection from every unit to the new hosting suite.
  • The BDX allows companies in the building access to the same range of Fastnet's business grade data centre hosting and connectivity services - with the advantage of simple service setup and local support.
