Friday Roundup: NTT DATA, Hurricane Electric, CityFibre

March 29th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Three expansion projects, one data center, one backbone, and one FTTx:

Following on last month’s announced Paris expansion, NTT says it will be adding to its European footprint again with a project near the German capital of Berlin. NTT Data has acquired 26.7 acres about 30km west of the city in the municipality of Brieslang. The plan is to build a third campus in the Berlin metro area housing two data centers totaling 96MW of capacity. If all goes well they hope to start construction next year.

Hurricane Electric has added another point of presence in the eastern Mediterranean. The global IPv6-native internet backbone has expanded to a second data center in Greece. They have moved into the Balkan Gate data center in the northern city of Thessaloniki, which offers 2,500 square meters of space and room for 10,000 and is operated by Lancom.

CityFibre’s FTTH buildout in the UK city of Lincoln is expanding into new areas. The project has brought residents online in the wards of Abbey, Glebe, Minster, Castle, Carholme and Birchwood and is now taking aim at Harsholme. Lincoln is northeast of Nottingham and its history stretches back to the Roman empire around the time of Nero.
