euNetworks launches diverse route in the UK

20 May 2013 |


euNetworks has launched a diverse route from London to Basildon in the UK.

The move will support the pan-European bandwidth infrastructure provider’s low latency link from Basildon to Frankfurt, Germany, which went live in December 2012.

The route is also said to support growing customer demand for 100Mbps Ethernet through 10Gbps wavelengths.

euNetworks’ VP of product and strategy David Selby said that Basildon, which is located 25 miles east of central London in the country of Essex, is becoming a “critical trading location with growing importance to the financial community”.

“Being able to offer a diverse route out to Basildon from central London combined with our leading long haul ultra low latency capability to Frankfurt offers our customers yet another compelling reason to choose euNetworks to deliver their connectivity needs,” he said.

“Diversity in this market is increasingly important as customers require both low latency and high availability to fulfil their network requirements.”

euNetworks owns and operates 13 fibre-based city networks across western Europe, which is said to enable customers to connect from their office building, a data centre or exchange, through to NYSE Euronext with either Ethernet or wavelengths services.
