A great team
Having the right team is a great recipe for success and ours is dedicated to delivering our shared goals. After over 16 years, we know it works, but of course there is always room to learn and to grow. We move with the times and we have some great ideas for new products and services.
We believe in keeping things simple. A robust, reliable solution, backed up by an experienced team with a passion for delivering a great customer experience.
We utilise modern Intel based servers, hosted within environmentally friendly data centres using renewables and innovative water based cooling systems to reduce overall power usage.
Our network provider offers more than 20Tbit/s of global network capacity.
Whilst we still maintain physical servers for some of our older streaming technologies, we have moved much of our infrastructre to the cloud in recent years. These efforts will continue over the next few years as we launch some new and innovative services and products.
