Black Cat Networks


On 13th July, RapidSwitch acquired Black Cat Networks Ltd (BCN), a well-known supplier of colocation and hosting services. BCN will be integrated into the RapidSwitch business over the next six months.

BCN has been established for 8 years, and brings over 2000 clients to RapidSwitch as part of the acquisition. There is an obvious synergy between the businesses, and RapidSwitch will bring considerable benefits to the BCN clients, including a private data centre, 24/7 on site support, and a high-speed 10 gigabit network.

This acquisition is part of RapidSwitch’s growth strategy, which includes consolidation of the market as well as fast organic growth. We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all of BCN’s clients onboard, and we look forward to working with them in future.

We received an email at 4am this morning from one of your support team informing us that there may be an issue with a hard disk in one of our co-lo servers. I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the proactive level of service we receive from RapidSwitch. A refreshing change to many other IT companies we have dealt with over the years.
