    I know a couple of WHC guys have colo/racks at the CCS Leeds data centre - Nick from ACS and Ben from Chill Mint Labs.

    That's the old CCS Leeds place on North Street, isn't it?

    As Ed said I have space in the CCS DC and I can certainly recommend it. Great set up there and great company to work with.

    Very important question, because you may well find that your traffic goes from you -> London -> Leeds, or You -> Manchester -> Leeds.

    For the sake of being complete those in Leeds not mentioned so far that I can think of are sleek.net and Webfusion.
    Sleek are very corperate and likely expensive. Webfusion don't do colocation which is what I assume you are looking for, but that they have just done a big DC expansion so may be persuaded.

    Indeed - More than happy to discuss with Nigel/whomever, although we do peer locally with VM amongst others for example. That said VM perform all BGP in Manchester anyhow so traffic still trombones Mcr (or London depending on final destination)

    To note Sleek are now owned by Adapt. I always thought from my discussions with Ryan they were more focussed on managed rather than anything else?
