Interoute Named Best Pan-European Wholesale Telecoms Provider

Interoute, owner of Europe’s most advanced next-generation voice and data network, has won the award for Pan-European Wholesale Telecoms Provider at the Capacity awards. The ceremony, held in Amsterdam on 12 November, was the second year in succession that Interoute has won the Pan-European Wholesale Telecoms Provider category.

The panel of judges was impressed by the sheer size and scale of Interoute’s next-generation network. It is the largest and most advanced voice and data network in Europe, stretching between 85 cities in 22 countries and including 19 Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) and 8 data centres in key European cities. It has a significant presence in both Western and Eastern Europe, and has grown its reach through acquisitions such as the CECOM network which helped Interoute capitalise on the growing demand for communications services in Central and Eastern Europe and use as a springboard to new markets such as Turkey and Ukraine.

Gareth Williams, Interoute’s CEO said “To win this award once is fantastic, to win it two years in succession is a real endorsement of what we as a company have achieved. We own and manage THE Pan European Next Generation Network and have invested heavily in enhancing this as a platform for our customers whilst expanding our network to serve both the traditional and the emerging markets of Europe.”

The Capacity magazine award comes just months after Interoute triumphed at the Global Telecoms Business Awards, where it won the award for innovation in the voice/data convergence category, for the company’s unified communications platform, Interoute One.
