Eurofiber Expands Fiber-Optic Capacity in Economic Heart of Belgium

Brussels - EU

Eurofiber, a provider of digital fiber optic connections and cloud infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has begun an 80-kilometer cable expansion of its Belgian fiber optic network. The order for the project, which will be completed in early 2023, comes from a major international cloud provider.

The company will connect two points of the existing Eurofiber network, creating a new, 120-kilometer fiber optic ring serving the Brussels-Gent-Antwerp triangle, the economic heart of Belgium.

The new ring will deliver capacity via a complete 144-fiber cable running through five major Belgian business parks. The ring will also connect three data centers: LCL West in Aalst, Interxion Digital Realty BRU4 in Zaventem to the east and a new EdgeConnex facility in Ternat.
