“I have spent many months looking for the right Colocation space. Having spent years working in and around Colocations, I really felt I could find the space and negotiate the price on my own. After calling John to see what he could do, I was greatly impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and connections in the industry. He quickly helped me secure the right Colo space for my budget and needs.”
