Here’s a quick look at some international items from the last day or three:

Stack Infrastructure has officially launched its flagship campus in Toronto. Yesterday they announced the delivery of the first phase of the project, adding 8MW of capacity to the market. When complete, the campus will support 56MW on 20 acres just 6 miles from downtown Toronto. They partnered with First Gulf for the development project and with Toronto Hydro for renewable power. The next 24MW are planned for Q2 2026.

Subcom says it will be building a new subsea cable in the Middle East. Batelco has selected Subcom to manufacture and install the Al Khaleej Cable, which will branch off of SEA-ME-WE-6 to connect to Bahrain as well as Oman, Qatar, and the UAE. SubCom will be manufacturing the cable itself at its plant up in New Hampshire, and the cable is expected to be ready for service in Q2 of 2026.

GI Partners is moving into the European infrastructure market with its latest deal. The investment firm has signed an agreement to acquire ASK4, a service provider that focuses on the in-building multitenant connectivity sector. ASK4’s footprint covers 320,000 customers across 12 countries, and GI Parnters hopes to further accelerate their expansion.

Hurricane Electric is expanding the reach of its IPv4 and IPv6 global network in the Southeast Asian nation of the Philippines. They have deployed a second PoP in Manila within ePLDT VITRO Makati 1. The facility is part of PLDT’s footprint and offers some 202 racks of capacity 6 miles from the airport.

And HGC is taking its managed SASE services beyond Hong Kong to the surrounding region. They have launched their end-to-end solution in nearby Macao as well as 9 municipalities of Guangdong on the mainland. HGC’s solution is built upon Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma SASE solution and leverages HGC’s cross-border fiber infrastructure.
