Virtual1’s multi-million pound investment sees over half a million on-net opportunities direct to the Channel

Virtual1 has announced a multi-million pound investment in its new London Metro Network and Core Infrastructure. The announcement was made to their top Partners at the Epsom Investec Ladies Day event on Friday of last week as part of their 2014 Epsom Series.

The expanded network has been many months in development seeing over 2,000 man hours in the build, with an increase of over 200% in its Points of Presence to over 50 PoPs and datacentres, 1,200 cabinets on the footprint, 2,000+ Gb ports in London with 15 Tbps of throughput on the Network.

The dedicated dark fibre network, which is entirely Juniper based, now provides over half a million on-net opportunities and has created a high capacity, low latency network direct to the Channel with the most competitive fixed London pricing on 100Mb, 500Mb and 1G services.

Whilst 100Mb and 500Mb are currently seeing the most growth we have built our network to provide resilient and diverse options to cater for the anticipated growth over the coming years says Managing Director Tom O’Hagan.

With future trends predicting that lower bandwidths will decrease in growth and customer aggregation and migration to higher bandwidths being the norm Virtual1 has built the network with future proofing forefront of mind.

With lower access pricing, automated paperwork, free QoS and SIP Exchange Virtual1 yet again proves it is one step ahead in giving the Channel the greatest opportunities.
