Hurricane Electric Adds Interxion Madrid to European Footprint

July 1st, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

This morning Hurricane Electric added some Spanish connectivity to its international network, bringing a new point of presence online at Interxion Madrid.  The new node will offer 100Mbps, GigE, and 10GE pipes to Interxion customers, giving them more options and lower latency to the HE backbone.

Hurricane Electric network mapFor several years now HE has been quietly expanding its European footprint beyond the usual half dozen familiar sites in the UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, and Germany. In addition to today's Spanish expansion they've now got a node in Milan as well as a cluster to the east in Warsaw, Prague, Sofia, Budapest, and Bucharest.

Additional expansions are on tap as well.  The IP transit world is still a rough neighborhood of course.  But it has been gaining breadth, with more and more markets seeing bandwidth scale to the levels necessary to justify such moves, especially in Europe.
