GlobalNet unveils new PoP in Warsaw at Equinix data centre

GlobalNet, a Dutch backbone provider, confirms its expansion into Central Europe with one new Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Warsaw.

The Internet Service Provider launched a new PoP in the capital of Poland, which is based at Equinix WA1 data centre.

This strategic expansion underscores the company’s commitment to enhancing its network across Central Europe. The new PoP marks GlobalNet’s first foray into Poland and its third launch in Central Europe following the recent PoP in Berlin.

The new site will serve as a critical hub, offering robust connectivity options of IP-Transit and DATAIX services via 1G, 10G, 40G and 100G ports. Moreover, the Berlin-Warsaw route will bring new transport options to the region due to GlobalNet’s European backbone spanning through Stockholm, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin and now Warsaw.

“GlobalNet sees great potential in developing its network in Central Europe. This is an important step for us as we intend to expand our network throughout Poland and other countries in the region,” said Alex Surkoff, Business Development Director at GlobNet.

“We see a noticeable interest in our services among current and potential DATAIX members, which is why we decided to deploy our 69th PoP in the Warsaw data centre. The new connection in Poland’s capital will enable GlobalNet to interconnect the Northern, Western, Central and Eastern European regions through a single DWDM system,” added Surkoff.

The addition of the Warsaw PoP will significantly enhance the service offerings to GlobalNet’s existing and prospective members, providing improved access to international and local traffic via DATAIX international distributed peering network. 

“The new PoP not only strengthens our network but also enhances our ability to deliver high-speed Internet access and connectivity with full channel redundancy across Europe,” added Surkoff.

GlobalNet remains committed to its rapid expansion strategy, with further developments expected to enhance connectivity and digital service capabilities across Europe and Asia.
