    Matt Hawkins, C4L’s founder and Managing Director was understandably delighted with C4L’s high ranking, “We’re pleased to have been ranked 12th overall, but also to be the fastest growing colocation provider in the UK is extremely gratifying and a great reward for the efforts of our staff over the past year.

We were also finalists in 2 categories of the ISPA (Internet Service Provider Association) awards this year, so this has been a good year for us. Our Bournemouth data centre is due for first phase completion in December, and we’ve also launched our wireless leased lines service, so there is every reason to expect our strong growth to continue for years to come.
