Is there demand for this?

A couple of us are thinking of setting up a colo in the uk!
Is there any interest?

What sort of prices are colo's in the uk selling for?

At first look we were thinking of £15 per u and £150 per Mbit.

Please post any sujestiongs.

There is definitely a decent level of demand for colocation in the UK, if you target the right customers.

£15/U seems a little low, in fact it does make me wonder about the quality of facility you would this from on such a pricing scale?

Not to mention, colocation is a product more suited to the business arena - often a lower price can scare away rather than attract such customers...

well we are not paying alot less.
But we need to cover cost of APC, Managed switch ect.

To be honest £150 would be if you buy like 3Mbit+.
It may be more for 1Mbit.
We haven't done all the figures yet.

But we are looking closley into it.
