Network developments

Our growth strategy continues to be to strengthen our footprint in existing metro areas, and connect to new metro markets in adjacent geographies. The attractiveness of each metro is assessed according to underlying customer demand.

Connecting data centres is core to our business, supporting our customer’s growing bandwidth needs in cities and between cities. We have a proven track record in developing networks at pace and we do this development while working closely with our customers.

We help businesses measure their emissions to meet ESG and sustainability goals

To help our customers achieve their own ESG and decarbonisation goals, we have developed innovative, data-driven tools that provide emissions reporting on network construction projects and individual services.

The euNetworks Network Construction Carbon Tool

This assesses the environmental impact of planned network construction projects, providing transparency around greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for proposed new network builds. This allows customers to fully understand and accurately report on the environmental impact of proposed network building projects and the ability to alter designs to lower their carbon impact.

We’re upgrading some paths and overbuilding key routes as bandwidth demand between key ‘hyperscale’ data aggregation sites continues to grow exponentially. We’re also extending our metro networks, constructing diverse, unique routes to new locations that are near our existing metro footprints. We’re fortunate to have a network that enables us to do that and when you own the duct or sub-duct, you have more control over the economics of how you shape and develop your network.
