The Loop, powered by Gamma, is more than 170Km of fibre network in Greater Manchester, supplying direct connectivity to datacentres and ultrafast internet access to the private and public sector.
The fibre optic cables are buried under the region’s roads and remained largely dormant for over a decade until The Loop was launched in October 2012. The original cabling was installed by Atlantic Telecom, largely to support the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002, but Atlantic subsequently went into administration.
The Loop, which solely focusses on Greater Manchester, is based in Trafford Park. The network circles the city centre and stretches out to Eccles in the West, towards Oldham in the North, Stretford in the South and Gorton in the East.
With offices in Manchester, London, Glasgow, Newbury, Fareham and Budapest, Gamma has been ranked in the Sunday Times ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ three years running and is a consistent ‘Network Operator of the Year’ award winner.
Gamma customers include FTSE100 organisations and critical welfare services. It operates a comprehensive service governance model, with the majority of products certified to ISO22301, ISO27001 and ND1643 (OFCOM’s mandated security standard for next generation operators).
