About e-llan Communications
e-llan Communications Limited (e-llan) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Manx Electricity Authority (MEA), the Isle of Man’s electricity supplier. The company was created in order to leverage the commercial potential of the spare fibre optic capacity in the UK-IOM interconnector cable. e-llan began commercial operations in December 2007 and provides telecommunications services to internet businesses and IOM internet service providers on a wholesale basis.
By linking into the UK/Europe network using a leading carrier, e-llan offers a range of connectivity solutions to the UK and beyond. e-llan also utilises an extensive fibre network which interconnects MEA substations around the Isle of Man, to provide fibre tails for off-Island bandwidth customers.
e-llan's entry into the wholesale market has further secured the island's telecommunications infrastructure. The management of robust, resilient networks is a key skill of e-llan's parent company MEA. The culture and ethics of this business have allowed a strong network management regime to be forged at e-llan.
The Isle of Man is a very attractive location in which to do business and provides significant competitive advantage for eBusiness companies and data centres. Please see the IoMG eBusiness website for a detailed view of the many benefits of operating from the Island.
