For a while now we’ve recommended our Newark and Atlanta datacenters to our European customers, which both have under 100 ms latency to the UK. However, there is nothing better than having your services closer to you and your clients. So today, we are proud to announce a brand new Linode deployment in London, England, UK!
This new deployment is located at Telecity Group’s state-of-the-art Powergate facility (tour) with peering to many well connected providers including Deutsche Telekom, Interoute, Level3, PCCW-BTN, Telia and Tiscali. You can use our speedtest page to test latency and download speeds.
Our new London facility has immediate availability. Please open a support ticket if you’d like to migrate your existing Linode to London. Alternatively, you can add a new London Linode to your account and clone your existing Linode to it. When you remove your original Linode you will receive a prorated credit for the unused time.
In response to your requests for a European presence, we’ve had this effort in development for many months and are extremely pleased to be able to go live today.
