Telia Carrier expands its Italian footprint

Telia Carrier has announced that it has extended its network in Italy with a new PoP (Point-of-Presence) in Rome, the company said.

Situated in the NaMeX datacentre in the heart of the city, the new PoP will provide crucial backbone and Cloud Connect services for major operators, content providers and enterprises requiring high-speed and direct connectivity in the region.

The global wholesale carrier market in Italy is seeing a heightened demand for high capacity IP and transport services, driven to a large extent by an increase in fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), especially in the south. With this in-country expansion, Telia Carrier will be well placed to support the growing need for a variety of services across the entire length of the country, from its existing Milan PoPs in the north and the new PoP in Rome.

Telia Carrier´s global fibre backbone has grown organically, without acquisitions, and was the first to be 100G-enabled in both Europe and North America. Discover more at
