Stavanger, Norway – 1st December 2020. During the last 12 months, Tampnet Carrier has increased its delivery of data traffic in and out of Norway by over 90%. This increase is due to a strong focus on tailor-made routes and world-class technology which ensure low latency and multiple connection options in Tampnet’s network – especially between Norway and the United Kingdom.
Tampnet Carrier has opened its network for international data traffic and enabled enormous traffic growth.
”Growth in the last year is due to our three landing points and the multiple connection options we offer. In addition, Tampnet is launching a completely new connection from Egersund to the UK, opening on 15th December. When this opens, it will enable further growth in data transport and we already have several large well-known international customers, both so-called “Hyperscalers” and data centres, waiting to use this connection”, says Cato Lammenes, general manager of Tampnet Carrier.

According to TeleGeography’s global bandwidth analysis, international capacity use in Norway in 2019 was 7 Terabit/s. Tampnet Carrier now facilitates approx. 3 Terabit/s, i.e. a significant proportion of the total traffic, which at the end of 2020 is expected to reach 10 Terabit/s. In particular the many new data centres in Norway benefit from the connectivity which Tampnet Carrier delivers. Tampnet Carrier also offers more tailor-made routes with low and ultra-low latency both in and outside the Nordic Region. These routes ensure market-leading low latency for the gaming industry, media and 5G, as well as the Nordic and European financial markets, which are a major market for Tampnet Carrier.

The company’s experience from business-critical and vital oil and gas communications is reflected in the construction and operation of the operator network. Tampnet Carrier now stands out as the leading supplier of low-latency connections to the Nordic region.
”Another reason for our very impressive growth is the human element at Tampnet. We are an organization with very high technical competence at the same time as being of a size which makes us very flexible and gives us the ability to quickly carry out and deliver complex projects. Central to our high uptime is our customer service (Network Operations Centre) with highly technically skilled first-line support available 24/7”, Lammenes emphasizes.
