Digital infrastructure business euNetworks Group has expanded its long-haul network into Poland, with three new routes to Warsaw.

These routes deliver around 2,977km of lit fibre connecting the Polish capital directly with Berlin and Hamburg, with the third route via Brno, supporting traffic to Prague, Bratislava and Vienna.

The expansion took nine months to deliver and has been designed with each route landing in a separate data centre in Warsaw, with scope to further expand as new data centres come into service in the region.

The north route is 924km long and extends from Berlin and Hamburg. Its route has been built to enable customers to bypass Berlin.

The middle route is 845km long, running from euNetworks’ Berlin data centre facility into Warsaw.

The south route, at 1,178km, connects Vienna and Warsaw and enables Bratislava in Slovakia as a new point of presence for euNetworks along the way.

These routes connect into the key data centres and data centre hubs in Warsaw.

Paula Cogan, President, euNetworks, said: “Warsaw is an exciting new region for data centre growth and is an important market experiencing strong bandwidth growth.

“It’s a growing cloud region in Europe, with its geographic position making it a key connectivity hub for hyperscalers and cloud service providers. We continue to develop our network in support of our customers’ bandwidth requirements across Europe.

“Our expansion into Poland enables us to continue to offer a seamless and end to end data centre connectivity experience for our customers on our network with the same service delivery and support experience they have come to value.”

euNetworks’ long haul network now spans 17 countries, connecting 53 cities.

The expansion East follows deployment of additional critical infrastructure linking the UK and the Netherlands, with euNetworks’ latest Superhighway along with subsea cable Scylla going live in September 2021.
