Company

icolo.io has been established with the vision of building a Pan-African network of colocation data centers. icolo.io builds and operates state-of-the-art (Tier 3), vendor and carrier neutral data centers to serve a broad spectrum of clients, telecom carriers, ISPs and peering points, IT and cloud providers, content providers and corporates.

The company has hyper-connected data center hubs in their countries of operations. It will differentiate itself from providers of hosting services by being the first independent data center business to focus solely on colocation services (space, power availability licenses and physical interconnects). It is icolo.io’s objective to be the largest independent colocation data centre operator in Africa over the next five years.
