Exa Infrastructure is investing in a new terrestrial transport route to Lisbon and Sines in Portugal. This strategic investment in the southern Europe transport route is designed to provide customers with more diverse connectivity to high-growth cable landing stations (CLS) and data centres.    

The move follows Exa’s announced a new 600km network link between Barcelona, Zaragoza and Bilbao, connecting data centre clusters that are growing in all three cities. This is in addition to enhancements to metropolitan fibre in the Barcelona area that are currently underway.  

Steve Roberts, Exa Infrastructure Vice President Network Investments explains: “Expanding our network routes to Portugal builds on Exa’s strategy to be the leading provider of data centre to data centre and subsea cable connectivity. We are delivering on our promise to offer our customers competitive choices from a specialist infrastructure provider by diversifying transport routes across the Iberian Peninsula from Spain to Sines and Lisbon.”

Nicholas Collins, Chief Commercial Officer at Exa Infrastructure adds: “In the last 12 months, EXA has promised to be the most expansive and dedicated infrastructure network for organisations looking to maximise scale and control. We are delivering on that promise and expanding our footprint to extend from Spain to Portugal is the next step in this journey. Our focus is firmly on building more diversity options for new and existing customers on one of the most advanced fibre networks in the market.”
