Here's a quick look at some news from the metro arena from the first half of this week:
euNetworks is delivering some new dark fiber over in Germany. They've hooked up DARZ in Darmstadt to their network via the shortest route currently available. Located 30km south of Frankfurt, DARZ is a data center aimed at backup and disaster recovery for the financial sector with reinforced concrete walls 1 meter thick. euNetworks has been finding the German market more and more to its liking lately.
Comcast Business continued its expansion by adding a new fiber market along the eastern flank of the Rockies. They're now offering up to 10Gbps Ethernet connections to businesses in Castle Rock, Colorado, which lies between Denver and Colorado Springs. Regulators may have killed off the TWC deal and prevented what would have been a major inorganic expansion, but Comcast Business continues to roll on with its 20%+ organic growth so they aren't exactly hurting.
Unite Private Networks continued to strengthen its hold on Nebraska bandwidth with another enterprise win. They're working with JEO Consulting, providing Ethernet private lines to connect three offices around the state to their overall network, as well as provide them with high speed internet. UPN has been very busy over the last year or too across a swath of territory from the Colorado Front Range to the Mississippi.
And 365 Data Centers is upgrading in three metros while divesting in two others. They've added new power and cooling systems in Buffalo, Cleveland, and Detroit, and sold off data centers in Dallas and Reston. 365DC has been focusing on edge markets rather than the usual suspects, and you can see that pattern again in the fact that the three markets the company put money into are lower profile in data center terms than the two they sold. InfoRelay Online Systems purchased the Reston data center.
