Skynet, was one of the first commercial ISPs in the UK originally specializing in dial up connections via local rate numbers at the dizzy speed of 56.6kbps!
Skynet and Nuco Technologies offered very similar services and were located within one kilometre of each other. They were also well known to each other going back to the early days of the commercial internet so the acquisition was a natural evolution.
Skynet had its own independent data centre but shortly after the acquisition this was decommissioned and all services were migrated to one of Host-it's own data centres.
Now that Skynet is part of Host-it Internet Solutions most
of Hosting services are managed under their plans with the Skynet
site now focusing on connectivity solutions.
