EXA Infrastructure, the world’s biggest dedicated digital infrastructure platform connecting Europe and North America, announced today its initial commitment to invest in a series of substantial network expansions across Europe, several of which are currently underway. EXA is pursuing a planned expansion strategy that includes capital investments in new infrastructure as well as maximising the usage of current assets.
The company’s vision is to become the undisputed leader in the European digital infrastructure market, with the broadest geographical coverage across the continent and transatlantic routes. The network build and optimization programme will primarily focus on routes in the Mediterranean region in southern and eastern Europe.
EXA has invested €190 million in its first half-year in business, adding more than 7,000 kilometres of network through the creation of several new terrestrial and subsea routes, as well as the lighting of dark fibre to increase capacity on many existing links. Additional capital expenditure of up to €150 million is expected before EXA’s first anniversary in September.
The investments are made in tandem with the network’s annual cycle of capacity and intelligence increases, as well as increased automation and resiliency.
