Colt joins Metro2C Alliance

16 April 2014 |


Colt has joined the Metro2C Alliance, becoming its 22nd member.

Founded by subsea network operator Sea Fibre Networks, the Metro2C Alliance is an association of connectivity providers, data centre operators and internet exchanges, working to create solutions for the growth of the digital economy.

Colt’s involvement with the alliance will bring customers direct fibre connections to 19,800 buildings and 20 data centres across Europe.

“Through the Metro2C Alliance, Colt continues to expand access to its integrated network and IT services portfolio. Members and enterprises will benefit from access to Colt's information delivery platform, combining network and IT infrastructure with expertise in IT managed services, networking and communication solutions to help grow revenues,” said Ken Sherry, country manager for Ireland at Colt.

The move builds on a busy period for the Metro2C Alliance, which also saw Viatel and LDeX added to the alliance in March.
