While it’s inorganic moves have been driving things for GTT lately, today they announced some organic network expansion. The global network operator has added a series of new PoPs in North America and Asia.
In the US, the new PoPs are within four Tier 2 cities with growing bandwidth markets: Charlotte, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Reno. To the north, GTT increased its Canadian presence with a PoP in Calgary. And on the other side of the Pacific, they added a presence in Osaka to go with their existing node in Tokyo.
Last month GTT announced plans to acquire Interoute, which will give their already deep European presence a heavy dose of terrestrial fiber infrastructure. While the integration for that will take some time, being the biggest they have yet undertaken, the logical followup would be to do something similar in North America. If they can find a target, of course, since there aren’t many national footprints left to take a swing at.
