Milan and Madrid gain new metro networks

Share this on social media:

Bandwidth infrastructure firm and network operator, euNetworks has extended its investment in Europe, building duct based, high-fibre count networks in the cities of Milan and Madrid.

Both of these 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 says that it is focused on delivering high bandwidth data-centre-to-data-centre connectivity, both between cities in Europe and within those cities. It currently owns and operates deep fibre networks in 17 cities across Europe and also operates a highly differentiated long-haul network that spans the region.

In 2017 euNetworks built out a new high-density fibre network in Manchester in the United Kingdom, and earlier this year the company 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.

Brady Rafuse, chief executive officer at euNetworks commented: ‘We lit 25,200km of fibre to our long-haul network between 2015 and the end of 2018. 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’re delighted to have metro presence in Milan and Madrid, with local teams on the ground.’
