euNetworks Taps CrossLakes New CrossChannel Cable

March 28th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

euNetworks has added to its infrastructure portfolio with a new exclusive partnership with Crosslake Fibre UK Limited. The deal enables euNetworks to offer ultra-low latency services between London and Madrid to the financial vertical.

Crosslake fiber’s CrossChannel Fiber cable system connects Slough with Paris with 96 fiber pairs spanning some 550km. It claims the lowest latency path between London and Paris, requiring just 4 amplifiers. The infrastructure, which went into service in 2021, takes a diverse path into Paris from the northwest.

The two companies now have an exclusive relationship, enabling euNetworks to sell dark fiber on Crosslake’s route as well. euNetworks has long targeted the financial vertical in western Europe via its euTrade platform, and its path to Madrid is enabled via other longhaul investments the company has made in recent years.

Crosslake Fiber got its start back in the US with a unique crossing of Lake Ontario, enabling a newly diverse, low latency path between Toronto and New York City.  Their latest project, however, is a terrestrial longhaul route between Toronto and Montreal, due for completion sometime next year.
