JUNE 9, 2010 -- Geo, a provider of high-performance networks for data users, has expanded its UK network and added three new sites to support a strategic push into the media sector.

Geo’s national network is being extended 50 km to Windlesham in Surrey, passing through many media-centric locations across London including Chiswick, Hounslow and Hammersmith, the service provider says. This extension provides an alternative route to Slough, offering customers fiber diversity.

The network will also pass Chiswick Business Park, home to some of the media sector’s largest names, as well as to two new data center facilities. One is in Slough and the other in London’s Telehouse West -- an £80 million data center in the heart of the Docklands.

Geo will connect to Chiswick by an extension of its sewer-based network. Geo’s cables run up to 30 m below street level, which it asserts virtually eradicates the threat of accidental damage to the fiber and provides high levels of security and resilience to its customers.

The extensions will enable Geo to provide network connectivity to a range of private and public sector businesses in the London and Slough centers of commerce, and takes the total number of data center connections to 23 in London and 16 nationally.

“Geo is continuing to execute an aggressive network expansion program, to both meet the growing needs of our existing customers and to strengthen our proposition to new clients”, said Chris Smedley, chief executive of Geo Networks. “Chiswick Park opens up many new opportunities for us, and we are delighted to be early partners with the two leading data center organizations including Telehouse, both of whom operate exemplary facilities and are highly regarded in their field.”
