Bandwidth infrastructure provider euNetworks Group Ltd. (SGX:5VT.SI) is planning a significant expansion to its London fiber-optic network. The company is adding Slough to its metropolitan network to the West of London, with diverse routes across London.

Slough and the surrounding area is a thriving connectivity hub for a growing number of high bandwidth consuming sectors, with a significant data center presence serving the London, UK, and international markets. With this investment, euNetworks will have developed additional high-density, fiber-rich infrastructure with direct connection to a further 25 key data centers.

euNetworks says it will deliver this expansion through a mixture of previously unused network assets, new construction, and duct procurement. Altogether, euNetworks expects to own and operate over 300 route-km of duct and fiber infrastructure in its London metropolitan network by the end of the calendar year. As in all of euNetworks global services areas, a full suite of bandwidth infrastructure services including fiber, wavelengths, Ethernet, and Internet will be offered.

“We secured debt funding earlier this year with the first priority to drive incremental organic growth,” said Brady Rafuse, chief executive officer of euNetworks. “Our London expansion is one of a number of network development projects now underway across our European footprint.

“This duct-based expansion enables effectively unlimited bandwidth potential between even more customer and data center locations,” added Rafuse. “We have already signed a number of customer contracts. The first buildings will be connected in December 2013.”
