Two independents have formed an infrastructure alliance in the Atlantic and western Europe. Pan-European fiber operator euNetworks and the new translatlantic entrant Aqua Comms have announced a strategic commercial partnership.
The deal allows the two companies to offer direct connectivity between all the endpoints on euNetworks European network and the other side of the Atlantic via the AEConnect and CeltixConnect cable systems. AEConnect was just completed over the winter, the second new transatlantic system to be brought online the last few quarters after a decade of nothing.
It's a natural partnership, giving euNetworks the latest transatlantic option to offer its customers and Aqua Comms greater reach deep into 13 metro markets across the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Switzerland. It's not a new relationship either, as the two companies have worked together in the past as well. Back in 2012, euNetworks lit its way across the Irish to Dublin by teaming up with CeltixConnect, which was later folded into Aqua Comms.
