HOTLINX Magazine: Spectrum Internet IXCardiff Member

Spectrum Internet is an award winning ISP based in Cardiff with its own network spanning across south West England and south Wales. Primarily working with businesses, Spectrum offers leased lines and a variety of superfast internet services. Spectrum has also been involved in a number of innovative community-based projects and has brought connectivity to poorly served areas.

Continually striving to support businesses, communities and local authorities in bringing services to areas with slow, intermittent internet speeds, Spectrum continuously looks for creative ways to deliver its services. From micro-trenching to using disused water ducts, Spectrum is a forward-thinking business that does not shy away from trialling new methods of delivering connectivity.

As one of the first LINX members to peer and pass traffic across IXCardiff just over a year ago, Spectrum was also instrumental in bringing a number of its own customers to the new exchange; from wireless ISPs in west Wales to content providers in Bristol.

With the business currently celebrating its  anniversary, Managing Director Giles Phelps has exciting plans for the next twelve months. He says: “After our success in the DCMS Connection voucher scheme, finishing in twelfth place in the UK, we’re looking to continue to the growth of our network, particularly into business districts in the south West of England.”
