The pan-European bandwidth infrastructure provider euNetworks has been putting resources to work in France. This morning they launched their dc connect service in Paris, which joins Frankfurt and London.
The service brings big bandwidth metro connectivity between 12 data centers in the French capital, from 1GbE to 100G metro wavelengths. It's a pro-provisioned platform that looks to take advantage of the growing data center interconnection market.
For euNetworks, French bandwidth markets has been a rather smaller focus than the UK or Germany, where most of the companies revenues are currently generated. But they do have significant metro reach in Paris (left), and France overall is definitely a place they would be looking for high growth opportunities.
In fact, I'd be surprised if they weren't looking at inorganic means of boosting their reach further. euNetworks moved into the Swiss Alps with the Fibrelac acquisition. I've heard their name in the context of Viatel, which parent Digiweb is said to be shopping. Viatel of course operates a conduit and dark fiber network throughout France, among other things.
