A few network and partnership expansions to note at midweek:

This morning we got a bit more detail on Telia’s expansion down into Mexico. In addition to the network partners they recently announced in Monterrey and Queretaro, Telia is teaming up with a more familiar face for data center space: Equinix. They are deploying nodes at Equinix IBXs in both cities, offering tenants access to their global IP network.

Seaborn and DE-CIX have taken their relationship beyond the New York metro area. The two are now offering interconnection and access to DE-CIX’s Marseille, Madrid, Dallas, and Frankfurt locations to Seaborn’s customers down in Brazil. Seaborn’s subsea cable offers 107.68ms RTD latency between DE-CIX New York and Sao Paolo.

STACK Infrastructure has beefed up its footprint in Texas with a bit of dark fiber. They have teamed up with InnerCity FiberNet to provide connectivity between STACK’s DFW01 and DFW02 facilities in Plano and sites throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. ICFN operates a 400 route mile network in the market, while STACK’s data centers feature 400K square feet and 32MW of power.

And Conterra has completed a $40M network buildout in ESC Region 15. No I won’t make you look that up, that’s Education Service Center Region 15, which means 36 school districts across 18 counties in west Texas. Not coincidentally, Conterra is now also offering fiber-based services in San Angelo and Brownwood. The expansion is one piece of a broader Texas effort over the last few years.
