Eurofiber acquires Brightfiber
Maarssen – Eurofiber acquires Dutch fiberoptic company Brightfiber. The acquisition strengthens Eurofiber’s position for fiberoptic connections in Dutch business parks.
Brightfiber develops, builds and manages fiberoptic networks at business parks across the Netherlands. Since its establishment in 2015, Brightfiber has expanded its own fiberoptic network across 15 business parks. “We have been very successful over the past few years in providing business parks with high-quality fiberoptic connections based on demand aggregation,” says Brightfiber Director Jim Kervezee. “Now it is time to transfer our network to the international network of Eurofiber, the largest enterprise fiberoptic provider in the Benelux. Our customers will benefit from the increased scale and Eurofiber’s expertise.”
“The business community is in the midst of a digital transformation, which has major consequences for what companies demand in terms of the capacity and reliability of their digital connections,” says Paul Naastepad, managing director of Eurofiber Netherlands. “Bandwidth and redundancy requirements, which were mainly dictated by large companies and organizations until recently, are also becoming increasingly common in small and mid-sized enterprises. This gives Eurofiber room to expand in these segments as well. The acquisition of Brightfiber fits in this picture.”
Eurofiber has been a provider of industry-leading open digital infrastructure since 2000. Utilizing our own fiberoptic network and datacenters, we provide smart, open, future-proof infrastructure solutions for both connectivity and cloud to companies, government bodies and non-profit organizations. Customers have complete freedom to choose the services, applications and providers they need, allowing them to tap into the full potential of digital innovation. Eurofiber has a 37,000 km fiberoptic network in Belgium, The Netherlands and France and stretching into Germany. This network is expanded by 40 km per week on average. Eurofiber companies Dataplace and Eura DC exploit nine datacenters in the Netherlands and France. Supplementing that vital infrastructure, we also offer interconnectivity between nearly all carrier-neutral datacenters in Belgium and The Netherlands through the DCspine platform. Eurofiber is laying the foundation under the digital society, which is why the Dutch government has assigned Eurofiber the status of ‘vital infrastructure’
