As the Greenwich Meridian separates east from west, so now there is a new meridian for data.

Stellium is the UK’s only cable landing station for the new international cables from Aqua Comms, the new Nordic subsea cables from Altibox/NO-UK and the UK’s newest Internet Exchange Point NCL-IX. Stellium is the meeting place for data-transfer east and west, as well as locally and nationally.

By bypassing London, Newcastle is effectively closer to New York than the capital is. And where old-style cabling could only transfer about 3 terabits per second of data, now with our advanced data centre services, 30 terabits a second is possible – a tenfold increase.
