Next generation network offers virtually unlimited capacity to prosperous economy
Gibraltar, 14 January 2010 - Gibtelecom, the leading telecommunications provider in Gibraltar, and Interoute, owner operator of a state of the art European next generation network, have deployed an alternative telecommunications route to Gibraltar, offering high capacity connectivity between the Rock and the rest of Europe.
The new Point of Presence (PoP) will give users and businesses in Gibraltar additional resilient access to Europe via Interoute's technologically advanced pan European network. Moreover, the fibre optic network offers virtually unlimited capacity to support further growth in Gibraltar. This new route complements Gibtelecom's existing international routes, including via Telefonica and Cable & Wireless, and will provide further communications resilience for Gibraltar.
Gareth Williams, CEO, Interoute, states, "Gibraltar's position makes it the natural hub for international businesses looking for easy access to Europe and Africa. Gibraltar has created a successful financial services and ecommerce sector which depend on first class communications. Consequently, we've seen an increasing demand from our customers to provide high capacity access to the region and we're delighted to be able to partner with Gibtelecom and connect to their fibre optic network."
