Venus Business Communications’ has expanded its network as the government grant scheme Superconnected Cities gathers pace. The network now provides 30 percent more network coverage than before giving businesses in Euston, Camden, Whitehall and Westminster direct access to the Venus Dark Fibre Network.
“There is growing demand from businesses across London for our network as they begin to realise that it provides a true fibre to premises service and can deliver very high bandwidth with access to a range of top quality data centres. We already have 14 points of presence across London that allows us to connect businesses directly to our network. This latest expansion increases this to 18 points of presence and the potential for thousands more businesses to connect to the Venus Dark Fibre network. Now our network passes hundreds of thousands of London postcode locations,” says Brian Iddon, Venus Business Communications’ Director.
“Two new data centres have been connected to the expanded network each being carrier neutral supporting our high network speeds. We now have ten data centres on network and our new expansion also brings opportunities for businesses to protect their data with 10 gigabits per second secure symmetrical dedicated lines between data centres, facilitating industrial mirroring. With many government bodies in Westminster we believe the demand for this service will be high,” anticipates Brian.
The new expanded network not only brings Venus Dark Fibre to more businesses across London it also brings the potential for future higher speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second. Many of Venus’ clients are multimedia and finance companies that require high bandwidth to transfer, store and process large quantities of data. While Venus speeds of 10 gigabits per second are very high they are striving to ensure that their network continues to be the fastest in the country.
“The government recognises that businesses require fast connectivity to compete in today’s IT dependent market. With faster connectivity comes operational efficiencies and increased competitiveness. The government’s Superconnected Cities schemes are stimulating businesses to get better connectivity and our network expansion provides our resellers and partners with the opportunity to exploit this scheme to its full potential in London,” concludes Brian.
