06 March 2017 | James Pearce


Superloop has established a new point of present at NEXTDC’s site in Canberra, expanding its high-speed network in the Australian capital.

Adding NEXTDC’s C1 data centre gives dark fibre provider Superloop a nation footprint across the colocation provider’s facilities including Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.

Superloop CTO Ryan Crouch said the addition of the Canberra facility will allow the company to offer increased access to fast and secure network connectivity for customers and channel partners nationwide.

“I’ve worked with NEXTDC since its first facility, B1, opened in Brisbane,” Crouch added. “This partnership between Superloop and NEXTDC has resulted in continual growth in colocation and network services for customers, and has seen our businesses grow in tandem.”

2017 looks set to be a year of expansion for NEXTDC, which is expecting to complete its AUD$75 million B2 data centre in Brisbane towards the end of 2017. It has also announced Tullamarine as the location of an additional AU$85 million facility in Melbourne.

“We have a strong relationship that really benefits the end-customer with the reliability of NEXTDC data centres and the nationwide scope of Superloop’s network. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the Superloop team on its path of growth well into the future,” said Adam Scully, group executive – sales and marketing, NEXTDC.
