euNetworks has announced the availability of new duct-based, fibre metro networks in Milan and Madrid that cover areas of high-bandwidth demand such as data centres, financial districts and the so-called Silicon Alley in Madrid.

“[We have] extended our reach into the Nordics, completed our pan German network and extended our reach from Paris to Switzerland, Marseille, Madrid, and back up to Frankfurt. The addition of the Vienna metro network in March this year and now Madrid and Milan, complement those investments, delivering unique routes and multiple paths for our customers to reach the data centres they need to in these cities.” Brady Rafuse, CEO, euNetworks.
