“When looking to expand, we examined and did personal tours with several of the data centers in the Valley. We were wasting our time though because phoenixNAP was by far the best we found. They had the most carriers, which allowed for the cheapest, fastest and highest quality bandwidth, as well as extremely competitive pricing on cabinets.”
