Another string to our bow

NGD is pleased to announce the availability of a new high capacity carrier-independent dark fibre network. The 67 km route stretches from NGD’s hyperscale data centre facility to Bradley Stoke in Bristol, including a 4km section spanning the Severn Bridge (M48) crossing. This has been a joint initiative with Nextgenaccess - an independent provider of custom and wholesale full-fibre network infrastructure.

As a major regional Colocation, Internet Peering and Cloud Hosting hub, we believe in offering maximum network choice and diversity. The connection of this new dark fibre route adds yet another string to our bow: joining an ever-expanding list of resilient, high-performance connectivity solutions.

NGD customers can count on having maximum flexibility and control over how and with whom their connectivity services are provided. As required, they can choose to use the newly connected Nextgenaccess 432 Fibre Optic System for provisioning dedicated low latency high-speed fibre network services between NGD and locations throughout the UK and internationally.

At the same time, the new route offers alternate carriers, telecom operators, service providers and resellers a carrier independent solution for delivering ultrafast broadband to SME businesses throughout the region. Mark Weller, Managing Director of Nextgenaccess expands on this further: “Our DPA / PIA license enables us to deploy fibre far more quickly with minimum disruption. If we had followed the traditional road dig approach it would have taken over five times as long and cost more than ten times as much. We help address the UK’s full-fibre deficit in strategic areas very cost-effectively, ultimately enabling significantly lower cost full-fibre services for end-users.”
