• High fibre count cable installed in both Milan and Madrid to accommodate high bandwidth customer growth.
  • Directly connecting key data centres with diversity.
  • Metro network investment follows long haul network development in France, Spain and Italy in 2018.

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–euNetworks Group Limited (“euNetworks”), a Western European bandwidth infrastructure company, today announced that it has undertaken further network investment in Europe, building duct based, high fibre count networks in the cities of Milan and Madrid. Both new metro networks deliver a footprint covering key areas of bandwidth demand in the cities, such as financial districts and Silicon Alley in Madrid, as well as directly connecting the key data centres.

The company is focused on delivering high bandwidth data centre to data centre connectivity both between cities in Europe and within those cities. As a leading bandwidth infrastructure provider, euNetworks owns and operates deep fibre networks in 17 cities across Europe and also operates a highly differentiated long haul network that spans the region. euNetworks continues to invest in its network, building unique routes, adding multiple diverse paths and extending reach into key hyperscale data centre sites, data centre clusters and network aggregation points. These investments continue to fuel the company’s growth and are driven by the capacity requirements of euNetworks’ customers.

euNetworks adds new metro networks to serve the needs of customers and to increase its addressable market in Europe. In 2017 euNetworks built out a new high density fibre network in Manchester in the United Kingdom. Earlier this year, euNetworks complemented its long haul network connecting into Vienna, with the acquisition of Onstage Online GmbH, which brought a 70km duct based metro network connecting 16 data centres.

“We lit 25,200km of fibre to our long haul network between 2015 and the end of 2018,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “That investment extended our reach into the Nordics, completed our pan German network and extended our reach from Paris to Switzerland, Marseille, Madrid, and back up to Frankfurt. The addition of the Vienna metro network in March this year and now Madrid and Milan, complement those investments, delivering unique routes and multiple paths for our customers to reach the data centres they need to in these cities. We work closely with our customers, building unique, differentiated networks. We’re delighted to have metro presence in Milan and Madrid, with local teams on the ground. We look forward to working closely with the data centre operators in Milan and Madrid and of course our customers as their presence here grows.”
