Long Haul connectivity

In the UK our long haul network connects up to Dublin in Ireland, down through Manchester to Cambridge, out to Slough, London and onwards to Lowestoft and Amsterdam. With multiple routes available, we connect the UK to Europe also avoiding London.

In December 2019 we added to our UK long haul footprint with the launch of our first Super Highway in Europe. Super Highway 1 delivers critical infrastructure in the UK and Ireland. We have built an entirely new end to end network system. Its 1,000km of high fibre count cable from Dublin to Manchester, London and Lowestoft including a new subsea cable (Rockabill) from Portrane to Southport.

Our long haul network spans 15 countries, connecting 51 cities across Europe. Most of our long haul network offers unique route alternatives, with multi-terabit capacity. We continue to invest in our networks, delivering more data centre to data centre connectivity for our customers.
