London, UNITED KINGDOM – 8 August 2013 – euNetworks Group Limited (SGX: 5VT.SI), a unique bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced it has connected the 1,000th building to its fibre network marking a significant milestone for the company. On 30 July 2013, euNetworks connected a building in London, occupied by a number of enterprise companies. This was the 149th building in London to go on-net.
euNetworks owns and operates 13 densely fibred city networks across Western Europe, along with a high capacity intercity backbone providing connectivity between these cities. euNetworks now provides fibre based connectivity to 226 data centres, 128 wireless tower sites and 646 enterprise office buildings and other locations. 133 of these data centres and enterprise buildings also have at least one wireless tower connected. Connecting bandwidth consuming buildings is what drives further traffic onto the networks, fuelling growth for euNetworks.
“In 2009 euNetworks made the commitment to focus investment in fibre based building connectivity across Europe,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “This is consistent with our infrastructure based plan to enable customers to enjoy virtually unlimited bandwidth access which, in turn, drives simpler and improved operating performance and increasing gross profits. Since 2009 we have increased on-net building count by nearly four times.”
“We believe that every business can benefit from bandwidth without limits. As more people, companies, applications and devices take advantage of the many benefits of being connected, bandwidth demand only increases. These trends underpin our investment strategy, indicating a large and growing need for deep fibre networks in densely populated city centres in Europe’s major cities.”
euNetworks sells high bandwidth products to other telecom companies and partners to help them meet the needs of their own customers, from large wholesale carriers, mobile operators, regional service providers and integrators. euNetworks also delivers solutions to enterprise customers, from online retailers, manufacturers, and logistics companies, to financial services and media agencies.
