The guys over at Oplink just sent in this unique colocation offer, which marks one of the first times such an offer would be published on Low End Box so we decided to feature it.

Oplink is not new to LowEndBox, they were last posted a few years ago in 2017, and have been in business since 1999. They are a trusted provider in the Internet Hosting space, so you can expect them to be a reliable provider. Their WHOIS is public and you can find their legal docs here. They accept PayPal and major credit/debit cards.

In their own words: 

“Oplink.net has been in business since mid-1999.  We began selling DSL Internet to the Houston Texas Metro area as an AT&T DSL transport partner.  In contrast to other ISP’s that used AT&T’s ATM network for transport as well as uplink, we routed all DSL Internet traffic to our uplink over Level3.  This gave our typical home user better pings/lower latency compared to going in and out to the Internet over a single  AT&T ATM link.

As we grew, clients requested to install servers in our datacenter, so we added racks in the ‘open space area’ in the Level3 Houston datacenter.  We kept growing and expanded into a private suite inside Level3’s Houston Premier Datacenter with 21 racks in 2010.  Funny fact, it’s the old Enron broadband suite with first class racks, and independent enclosed security.  Enron, the energy company, was preparing to roll out broadband content delivery, but never did before they filed for bankruptcy. In 2013 a company in the private suite next door to us moved out and we knocked a wall down to expand our suite to approximately 1000 sq. ft with 10 more racks.  Around this time we started renting dedicated servers and initiated VPS services.

In late 2017, AT&T offered Oplink.net a reselling partnership for their home and business Gigafiber service.  We migrated all remaining home & business DSL clients to fiber, providing a much needed speed bump for those clients. In mid 2019 we upgraded our core network uplink with Level3 to 100 Gbps and installed 10Gb switches to every rack. Latency was reduced 3 ms, routes are simplified, and customers in all our racks are configured for 1Gb/s service.   In 2020, we started offering 1Gb/s unmetered for all colo and dedicated servers.

Over the years we created a huge following loyal base of clients.  We are complemented for high quality technical personal support. We always will go above and beyond for our customers.  We hope we can do that for you as well!”
