Review of Equinix LD5

Equinix LD5 opened in 2010 and is only a few hundred metres away from Equinix LD4 on Buckingham Avenue in Slough. LD5 offers four huge data halls, each 40,000 sq ft in size (a total of 160,000 sq ft of net technical capacity).

Fibre cross-connects are available between LD4, LD5 and the newer LD6 (which is directly opposite LD4). What’s more, all three sites benefit from the carrier community that has dug into the Slough Trading Estate and LD4 in particular.
