euNetworks | March 14, 2023
euNetworks Group Limited, a company that provides bandwidth infrastructure in Western Europe, recently announced its acquisition of the dark fiber business branch of a utility company called ‘the Business Branch’ in Belgium.The Business Branch, constructed in the late 1990s, is a duct-based network with 1,660 km of fiber dispersed throughout unique Brussels routes and long haul routes across Belgium. It has access to additional high-bandwidth sites and is close to 13 data centers.
Customers from national and regional ISPs to content, cloud providers, mobile network operators, and hyperscalers will receive dark fiber and lit services through euNetworks' long-haul infrastructure. The recent upgrade underwent increased expansion capacity and ability to pull the new, higher-count cable, satisfying euNetworks' client bandwidth growth needs.
Paula Cogan, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks remarked, “euNetworks continues to distinguish itself in the digital infrastructure ecosystem, delivering critical internet infrastructure to customers through an asset-rich business focused on developing and deepening its fibre networks in Europe.” She added, “This acquisition will strengthen euNetworks’ leadership in European infrastructure by enabling us to expand across Belgium while maintaining our focus on delivering unique and scalable network routes to our customers between key data centres. It also presents compelling investment opportunities as we look into adjacent geographies with our customers to give them an end-to-end experience and as we focus on the ongoing densification of the high-demand bandwidth region of FLAP (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris).”

These investments drive the capacity needs of euNetworks' customers and fuel the company's expansion.
euNetworks was started in 2002 and has been serving wholesale, finance, content, media, mobile, data centers, and enterprise customers with critical bandwidth infrastructure services.
