Idaq® have provided a range of internet services to a wide range of customers since 2003. Our services include Wireless Leased lines, Fibre optic leased lines, public and private Wi-Fi services and datacentre colocation,
We're 100% UK based and operate from our own data centre facility in Sheffield, with points of presence in both London, Leeds and Manchester. Our data centre also serves as the Network Operations Centre for Idaq Networks®, where we distribute and control our Icnos® wireless internet service.
Unlike traditional or wired internet services, which are delivered by the legacy infrastructure, we use state-of-the-art carrier grade wireless equipment where possible or dark fibre to your point of delivery. Using our wireless infrastructure we are entirely independent and have no reliance on any single third party carrier or exchange to deliver service.

"When Idaq Networks first approached THS Tools Group in January 2015, our internet speed at that time was very poor and we were looking to vastly improve this but without the excessive costs involved for a traditional leased line. We had already unsuccessfully tested a wireless solution with a different provide, which had proved to be unreliable and as such we were very reluctant to try this again.
However after reassurances from Idaq Networks and speaking to some of their current customers, we decided to give it a try and went live with them in March 2016. This has proven to be a commercially wise decision as we now have a much faster and to date reliable, in all weathers, solution at a fraction of the cost of a leased line."
