External Connectivity

We're well-connected

Our network (AS39326) peers publicly with 300+ networks at eight Internet exchanges in four countries (UK, US, France, The Netherlands). We privately peer with firms such as Google and the UK's largest ISPs. Our upstream transit providers include Telia Carrier and NTT. We also deliver private dedicated connections to AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Public Peering



The London Internet Exchange (LINX) connects the networks of Content Delivery Networks and Internet Service Providers so traffic can flow more efficiently between them. LINX is one of the largest Internet Exchange Points globally, both in terms of the traffic passing over its network and the Internet routes which are directly accessible from its peering LAN.



LONAP is a neutral not-for-profit, independent peering point. It operates a network of interconnected switches at major data centres in London. LONAP has been providing the infrastructure for its members to establish peering and exchange traffic since 1997.



The Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) is a neutral and independent not-for-profit Internet exchange, providing services since the early 1990s and based in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. It has more than 600 members and nearly 1,150 customer ports.


NL-ix is a content oriented Dutch national Internet Exchange. Using its high-grade network, NL-ix provides is present in over 30 data centres in the Netherlands. NL-ix was founded in 2002 to serve as an alternative to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX).

France IX


France IX is a French Internet exchange point founded in June 2010. Its network consists of Points of Presence in Paris, the suburbs and Marseille, and was extended to 8 POPs in 2011. It aims to reinforce France as a global peering point by developing a panel of services which meet the various current needs of the market. It is based on the non-profit association model.

Equinix Paris

Formed in April 2008, Equinix Internet Exchange Paris is the leading Internet Exchange in France, providing peering services to more than 290 customers. The Equinix Internet Exchange provides a highly-available switching platform for network interconnection. Its service is designed to reduce operating costs and enable efficient IP traffic interchange by aggregating thousands of peering sessions.

Private Peering

hSo maintains private peering with select networks on direct fibre or copper. Networks are selected either due to high throughput or for operational importance.

Among the networks we privately peer with are large consumer ISPs BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk. We also peer with the operator of YouTube and Gmail, Google.


Public Cloud Provider Connectivity (Premium Option)



Amazon Web Services runs the world's most widely used public cloud. hSo:wholesale can provide dedicated connectivity to AWS from multiple data centres, so you can use AWS Direct Connect.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure

Azure is Microsoft's cloud. It is AWS's biggest rival in the developed world. hSo:wholesale can provide private dedicated connectivity to Azure via Azure ExpressRoute. We can also provide dedicated connectivity to Office 365.

Think of these as virtual private interconnects that allow access to the resources of a specific AWS/Azure customer.
