Partnership provides German B2B fibre infrastructure platform
NGN and Eurofiber have formed a long-term partnership for the German market.
German dark fiber provider, NGN owns and operates a long-haul and metropolitan fibre network across 52 cities including Munich, Leipzig, Halle, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Erfurt and Berlin. Digital infrastructure operator Eurofiber provides network infrastructure on an open access basis to telecom operators, companies, government bodies and nonprofit organizations with a 38,000km network across The Netherlands, Belgium, France and stretching into Germany.
Together the two firms will seek to accelerate the expansion of NGN’s network in order to address increasing demand for fibre infrastructure, providing a network that will be accessible to all German telecom operators, other network operators, multinational corporations and enterprises.
Marco Weigand, founder of NGN commented: ‘With Eurofiber we found the right partner to commercialise NGN’s unique network infrastructure and bring the company to the next level. We are very excited and look forward to working together with Eurofiber’s first-class team to service our current and future customers with an enhanced product offering.
Alex Goldblum, CEO of Eurofiber added: ‘Our partnership with NGN fits perfectly with our ambitions to play a role upgrading the telecom infrastructure in Germany. Combining NGN's unique network with Eurofiber’s experience in bringing open access networks to the market, we have found the perfect match that will allow customers to freely chose service providers and in many cases stay with their existing service provider, whilst benefiting from the infrastructure provided by Eurofiber.’
The intended partnership is subject to customary regulatory approvals in Germany.
