Enhanced connectivity routes between Amsterdam and Rotterdam:

RETN is connecting Amsterdam and Rotterdam with a redundant ring between two of the Netherlands’ most vital economic and industrial centres, opening up exciting opportunities for businesses, enterprises and smaller regional Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the Rotterdam area. It also positions Rotterdam as an attractive Disaster Recovery site for businesses looking to ensure Business Continuity.

“The addition of these new PoPs in Rotterdam aligns perfectly with our goal of providing enhanced, local connectivity options for our customers,” said Luc Janssen, Managing Director at RETN Netherlands. “Rotterdam’s status as the largest international harbour in the world and its growing business landscape make it a pivotal hub for internet connectivity. We look forward to further strengthening our presence in this dynamic city.”

Rotterdam, situated along major international subsea cable routes, offers a strategic geographical advantage, ensuring efficient data transfer and minimal latency. The city’s state-of-the-art data centres, network facilities and Internet Exchange points, along with its economic significance and interconnection opportunities, position it as a key hub for internet connectivity.
