Level 3 alumni and blogging neighbor Brady Rafuse has a new gig lined up. He will be taking over as CEO at euNetworks. Brady of course headed Level 3’s European operations for years, a move into a CEO position in the same market is a natural step forward. Good luck Brady! No word yet on whether his blog will continue in its present form, but perhaps he will take a page from former colleague Dan Caruso amongst others and make his blog into a valuable communication tool, the voice of euNetworks?
An arm of Global Voice Group, euNetworks is worth keeping an eye on. They have 15 metro networks connected by regional and submarine fiber between the British Isles, France, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. I first ran into them a couple years ago when they pounced on some assets of always-troubled Viatel. They are also a part of (and a main protagonist behind) euro-one, an interesting alliance of regional European fiber operators who together span most of the continent. The European bandwidth market is crowded, but it has been doing well lately and euNetworks has been growing in stature within it. It will be interesting to see where Brady takes it.
