In 2017, Central and Eastern Europe’s (CEE) growth soared to an over one-decade high, with the fastest annual rate since 2006. Boasting a robust commercial landscape and a buoyant economy, there is no doubt that the CEE region is becoming one of the most appealing markets and investment regions in the world.

GTT Communications, Inc. recently capitalized on this area’s prosperity with an upgrade to their fiber network spanning the CEE region, leveraging their advantageous landscape to bolster their clients’ superior service experience. The network upgrade and additional high capacity fiber routes enhance the diversity, scalability, and performance of GTT’s Tier 1 global IP network footprint for its enterprise and carrier clients throughout the region.

Committed to redefining enterprise communications and providing clients with the services and capabilities that drive productivity across their organizations, GTT focused on points of presence in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey. The upgrade adds a diverse, lower latency route from Budapest to Sofia. This recent advancement builds on their core values of simplicity, speed and agility through the deployment of next-generation optical technology. The application of this technology effectively doubles the available optical capacity per fiber in the initial upgrade and retains the ability to add capacity as needed to meet dynamic customer demand.

This upgrade underscores GTT’s proactivity, especially after their recent Interoute acquisition, allowing them to augment their scale to the tune of 72,000 km of fiber network and create the most comprehensive and competitive global cloud networking platform in the industry.

GTT leverages their global footprint to optimize worldwide communication and serve a cloud-based future, connecting people across organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud. Their agility and commitment to reducing the complexity of global communications allows them to expertly deliver top-tier service to every client, for every individual need.

Rick Calder, GTT president and CEO, affirmed GTT’s success in taking their multinational clients’ farther, faster, smarter with their outstanding, high-performance suite of services. He states, “Central and Eastern Europe is a significant market for GTT, and this network upgrade results in an even stronger set of cloud networking services for our clients.”

The CEE fiber network enhancement is set to be the latest in GTT’s unparalleled market advancements, driving business efficiency and growth for customers across Europe.
