Gamma invests to upgrade national network to 500Gbit/s

07/02/2017

Gamma is making a planned £5m investment in its national network to meet growing demand for its data services and to meet the increasing demand for speeds of up to 10Gbit/s from larger enterprises and the public sector. As part of this investment the company is also taking the opportunity to replace the fibre on its national network with a new arrangement with CityFibre which runs to 2042. The new network will also reduce Gamma’s cost of delivery of data services in a highly competitive market and is readily scalable to 8Tbit/s*.

Andy Rawnsley Gamma’s Chief Architect said: “Gamma’s portfolio of data services is enjoying strong growth and this planned investment will enable us to both increase capacity and extend our reach closer to the areas of highest demand.”

* 1Tbit/s is 1,000Gbit/s
