10 Great Reasons to Choose UKFast
We're at the cutting edge
We always aim to be first to the market with innovative products. Our research and development team developed load balancing technology, and we were one of the first to speed up the internet with web acceleration.
From two to more than two hundred
Two people started UKFast in 1999 and our team is now over 250-strong. Those two founders, CEO Lawrence Jones and wife Gail Jones, are as active in the business today as ever.
In three rings you're through
We answer the phone within three rings - and that's a promise. We strive to be faster, whether that's a faster website for your customers or improving our support and service.
We're openly open source
We love open source and have the fastest growing LPIC-qualified team in the UK. We support the four flavours of Linux – CentOS, Ubuntu, RedHat, and Debian.
We are still always learning
We have five full-time teachers onsite who ensure that every member of the team has access to technical training, education and development which keeps us at the cutting edge of the industry.
A happy team = happy clients
For the past six years, we've been recognised in both the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For and the Best Workplaces list. We care for and value our team, and it shows in their passion and attitude.
Wholly owned data centres
We wholly own and operate seven data centres; our latest, MaNOC7, has been built to the highest standards, offering colocation and managed hosting, and was designed by our very own director of critical power.
Your personal support pod
Our support pods consist of eight seats; two account managers, two Linux engineers and two Windows engineers, with a technical junior and extra account manager during busy times. This ensures that our clients receive the best level of support from their dedicated support pod.
Our team has lasting loyalty
People rarely leave UKFast. In fact, nine out of our first 10 team members still work for us. The majority of our earliest employees are still with us more than a decade later. We're proud to help people grow their careers.
We measure satisfaction
Our clients are ten times happier than the average customer, according to The Net Promoter Score.
We're so confident in it that we run our live score on our homepage.
Your solution will be backed by a team of UK-based technical engineers available 24/7/365, plus a dedicated account manager.
UK Data Centres
We've invested £22m in our UK-based data centres to ensure the highest levels of service, security and performance.
