Map search interface
TeleGeography’s Colocation Database is navigable via an interactive colocation map. The map depicts more than 3,600 active colocation sites and the buildings in which those sites are located.
The map is searchable by country, metro area, city, building address, colo operator, and bandwidth provider. Selecting a building from the map projection provides its street address and links to profiles for the colocation sites present there.
