euNetworks, that specialises in bandwidth infrastructure, and Inter.link, a rapidly growing global provider of Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) and internet connectivity, have announced a collaborative effort to support Inter.link’s international expansion plans. Notably, Inter.link is measuring the carbon impact associated with euNetworks’ services.
As part of a multi-year agreement, euNetworks has provided long haul connectivity across several countries, including Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, the UK, and Ireland. Additionally, euNetworks has delivered metro Dark Fibre in Berlin, Frankfurt, and Vienna, establishing the core backbone for Inter.link in Europe.
Inter.link aims to enhance its network infrastructure in line with its ambitious growth plans for 2023 and beyond. These plans involve the addition of 26 new points of presence in Europe, as part of a larger global roadmap that encompasses over 50 locations. euNetworks’ extensive and unique long haul network, combined with its comprehensive fibre city networks, offers a seamless connectivity solution that perfectly suits Inter.link’s needs. The decision to expand their collaboration was driven by euNetworks’ differentiated network footprint, exceptional service delivery experience, and longstanding relationship with the Inter.link team.
Both Inter.link and euNetworks share a commitment to ambitious environmental, social, and governance (ESG) targets, striving for sustainable growth. Inter.link has already achieved carbon neutrality and has set a target to achieve net-zero emissions by 2025. euNetworks also places a strong emphasis on sustainability, setting ambitious emissions reduction targets as part of a comprehensive roadmap to lower emissions across its business and value chain. In 2023, euNetworks has gone a step further by developing innovative, data-driven tools that enable customers to assess the emissions impact of network construction projects and the carbon impact of the services provided by euNetworks, thus assisting customers in achieving their own ESG and decarbonisation objectives.
“We’re delighted to be expanding our relationship with Inter.link and supporting the team as they move forward with their exciting growth plans,” said Paula Cogan, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “We value the trust Inter.link has put in euNetworks and the close alignment and commitment both companies have to the sustainable growth of the European bandwidth market. We look forward to developing this partnership to enable and support Inter.link’s customers as their bandwidth needs grow, and their sustainability strategies develop.”
“It is an exciting growth phase here at Inter.link as we build our global platform for delivery of automated connectivity solutions,” said Theo Voss, CEO & Co-Founder of Inter.link. “We needed to work with a backbone provider who is committed to and actively investing in Europe’s future critical infrastructure, offers a unique solution in the market, has a strong track record in best-in-class service delivery and demonstrates alignment to our ESG values. euNetworks consistently delivers in all those areas and is the only bandwidth infrastructure provider able to deliver measured carbon impacts on network projects and their services. We look forward to collaborating further as we move forward with our connectivity plans.”
