euNetworks Lights Its Way East

December 14th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

In some network expansion news over in Europe, euNetworks is pushing deeper into Poland and Slovakia. The Western European fiber operator revealed a recent expansion of its longhaul infrastructure to Warsaw and Bratislava.

The project adds three distinct fiber routes to Warsaw to euNetworks’s footprint. The northern route spans 924km from Berlin and Hamburg with the ability to bypass the former, the middle route stretches 845km on a different route from Berlin, and the third reaches 1178km in from the southeast via Vienna, Prague, and Bratislava. They have added their first PoP in Bratislava as well, whereas I believe they had been in Warsaw and Prague via leased capacity prior to this.

They have been working on the project for about 9 months, following up on their Super Highway expansion in the UK and Scylla subsea connection on to the Netherlands. With 100G/400G waves and a suite of other offerings now available in Warsaw, euNetworks will be adding fiber connections to more data centers in the metro area.

euNetworks has steadily expanded its longhaul reach over the years, now extending all the way northeast to Helsinki and southwest to Madrid.  Where to next?  Perhaps the Baltics or a few of the markets in Italy or southeastern Europe, but those seem less urgent than ongoing investments in depth within existing markets like they’ve been doing in the UK.
