Howdy. Please excuse the semi-offtopic post. My company is looking for
bandwidth at the location below before Christmas. So that pretty much
rules out your standard leased-line options. Leased line looks to be
about 60 days out or so.

Does anyone know of any MAN (or anything else for that matter) options
at this location?

BT contractual delivery date is 60 working days, i.e 3 months.
The alternative telcos quote shorter lead times, however if your installation requires construction (i.e. road digging) you're likely to be out of luck. That would seem unlikely, however, given the development is quite new and large (I used to travel by it every day so know it slightly).

I would contact the landlord and ask for a list of on-site telcos. It's likely that someone like COLT, Abovenet, Thus, and so on are onsite and will be able to deliver service reasonably quickly.

This is all assuming fibre, of course - you didn't say just how much bandwidth you need. SDSL (don't forget multipair bonded) can be delivered on a much shorter timescale (~2 weeks) and may be an acceptable alternative. If so, look for the more specialist business ISPs on
