Re: Urgent need for bandwidth in Chiswick/London

BT contractual delivery date is 60 working days, i.e 3 months.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? Building 10 Chiswick Park 566 Chiswick High Road London W4 5XS
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 adslguide.org.uk
