Colt Technology Services, a provider of network and voice connectivity to businesses in Europe, Asia and the US, has announced that it is enhancing the reach of its Polish metropolitan area networks (MANs) in six cities across Poland: Katowice, Wroclaw, Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk and Poznan.
As part of this expansion, Colt has enabled direct fibre connection to more than 3,000 buildings and four new data centres in Poznan, Katowice, Gdansk and Wroclaw, to ensure it can meet the global and local connectivity demands of enterprises.
Colt says that the Polish expansion ensures it continues to underpin the digital transformation of national and international businesses as Poland undergoes a period of economic growth.
Colt continues to invest in its Colt IQ Network – a 400Gbps optimised intelligent network distributed to 900+ data centres and carrier hotels around the world – further densifying its offering globally.
This latest expansion aligns with Colt’s overarching strategy of enabling high bandwidths. As Keri Gilder, CEO of Colt Technology Services says: “Over the past year, demand for our network services has grown significantly in the Eastern and Central Europe region…Poland is very important to Colt, and we want to make sure that the Colt IQ Network is capable of serving the growing connectivity requirements of cloud players opening regional hubs, while catering for the needs of enterprises, connecting from a building in Warsaw or Poznan to New York or Frankfurt, entirely on Colt’s IQ Network.”
As we reported at the time, in 2018, Colt Technology Services expanded its Colt IQ Network in Central and Eastern Europe, connecting major hubs like Warsaw and Sofia in the region with more than 7,000km of new fibre infrastructure.
