IWB (Industrielle Werke Basel) have the legal status of a independent company under public law. The Telekom branch is running a optical network in the city of Basel and the largest public and carrier neutral datacenter (Telehouse) in northwestern Switzerland. All important national and international carriers are present in the data center offering their services to our customers.
The data center is a secure facility (Tier III level) for your IT and telecommunication equipment, run by a financially stable government-owned company in a politically stable country. The whole data center is run with carbon free non-nuclear electrical power without any surcharges for our customers. Even though Basel is the 2nd largest ecological area in Switzerland our price level for the data center infrastructure is half as high than in Zurich.
