Viatel, which is part of Irish-owned Digiweb group, has completed the second phase of its 100G network upgrade across Europe.

The company, which deployed 100G services from London to Paris last year, has extended the upgrade to enable services from Paris to Amsterdam, and London to Amsterdam via Brussels.

Viatel chief executive Colm Piercy said the works quadruples its capacity and is a clear response to address the growing demand for high bandwidth connectivity.

“Viatel will continue our investment programme across the markets that we operate in and this increased network capacity will enable us to further develop our range of flexible solutions,” he added.

Viatel provides connectivity and ICT solutions tailored specifically for larger enterprise, public sector, wholesale and carrier customers.

Digiweb merged with Viatel, a London-based telecoms operator, last year to create a telecoms operator that will connect 34 Western European cities over an 8,500km fibre network.

The increased bandwidth services from Viatel enables businesses to support an ever increasing rise in internet traffic and bandwidth hungry web resources.
