RETN UK Opens New Data Connectivity Links to Manchester

Tuesday, May 14th, 2024 (11:04 am) - Score 480

Eurasian focused network operator RETN, which proclaims itself to be the UK’s number one IP transit provider, has today announced that they’ve expanded their fibre connectivity to Manchester, which they say will bring “lightning-fast, secure, and high-availability internet to ISPs and enterprises in the city“.

The operator has recently made a series of investments into its international backbone, with network deployments in Western, Northern and Central Europe and Asia. The latest development reflects its expansion into two major sites in Manchester – including new Points of Presence (PoPs) in the Equinix and Datum (formerly Teledata) data centres.

As a result, RETN’s updated connectivity ring will better link Manchester with existing networks in London, Slough, Dublin, mainland Europe via the Paris Crosslake subsea cable (a low-latency route opened recently), London-Amsterdam, and London-USA etc. All of this will offer businesses both domestic and international access to their global internet backbone, which stretches as far as Beijing.

Chris Elliott, UK Commercial Director at RETN, said:

“Manchester’s status as a key digital hub aligns with RETN’s mission to improve communication and connectivity, underpinned by our core principles of transparency, flexibility, agility, and responsiveness. By expanding our services in this dynamic city, we’re dedicated to offering secure, private, and reliable connectivity solutions that empower both local and international communities, driving growth and innovation in every market we serve.”

Services offered include Layer 3 IP Transit, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) and Layer 2 VPN Ethernet Services, to provide redundant access to RETN’s 870+ points of presence across Europe and Asia.
