Idaq® have provided a range of internet services to a wide range of customers since 2003.
We're 100% UK based and operate from our own data centre facility in Sheffield, with points of presence in both London and Manchester. Our data centre also serves as the Network Operations Centre for Idaq Networks®, where we distribute and control our Icnos® wireless internet service.
Unlike traditional or wired internet services, which are delivered by the legacy infrastructure of fibre or copper, we use state-of-the-art carrier grade wireless equipment to your point of delivery. We're entirely independent and have no reliance on any single third party carrier or exchange to deliver service, which makes our service resilient and reliable.
We’re capable of delivering dedicated leased line services from 10Mb to 5Gb, supplied with a full Service Level Agreement. As we don’t rely on BT Openreach to deliver our service, we can offer installation many times quicker than the traditional services other ISP’s are currently offering.
Nominet are the UK's internet naming authority. Being members of Nominet allows us firstly to register UK domain names directly with the authority and not through a third party. Secondly our membership allows us to have a say in the future direction of the UK internet namespace. We actively monitor the direction and progress of Nominet and use our voting allocation to help guide Nominet in the direction we feel would benefit our customers.
The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA UK) is the UK's trade association for providers of internet services. ISPA UK was established in 1995 and promotes competition, self-regulation and the development of the internet industry. As a trade association, membership is voluntary but the companies who choose to become members of ISPA agree to abide by the ISPA UK Code. ISPA members' allegiance to the Code means that consumers can view the ISPA UK logo as a mark of commitment to good business practice.
As a member of Ripe we're classed as a Local Internet Registry or LIR. LIRs are so called because they are responsible for the distribution and registration of internet number resources at a local level. LIRs also ensure that RIPE community policies and procedures are followed at a local level.
