GEO Networks Extends London Metro Fibre Optic Network to Croydon

Posted Thursday, May 1st, 2014 (10:05 am) by Mark Jackson (Score 550)

GEO Networks, a dedicated fibre optic solutions provider, has confirmed a 14.5km long expansion of its network into south London (Croydon), an area that appears to be rife with the growth of new businesses and related developments.

According to GEO, a “significant” part of the new “high fibre count” network will be deployed using London’s sewer system. This will connect customers directly to the City and Docklands. Onward connectivity to Slough, Manchester and other parts of the UK and Ireland can be provisioned over Geo’s national network and the East-West Ring.

Chris Smedley, Chief Executive at Geo, said:

We see Croydon as an area with huge potential for Geo. It is already home to a number of major organisations and we think that there will be significant further growth in Croydon’s digital economy over the next decade. By extending Geo’s network to Croydon, we are able to connect businesses in this area to all the other critical data clusters across the UK and Ireland which we already connect, and support their current and future business requirements for high performance data networks.”

    The sewer reference is interesting. I take it the problems endemic with this approach when it was used in Bouremouth have been overcome then and that service won’t be continually disrupted when sewers are cleared of tree roots and other blockages?
