Today we’re pleased to announce the launch of ‘Project Edge’ – a significant network expansion project that will see our UK Fibre network extend to more than 12,000+km. 25 new points of presence (PoPs) are now live and a total of 54 additional PoPs will be live over the next three months at key UK business districts.
By pushing out the edge of our network, we will be able to greatly extend SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ reach and deliver our ultra reliable and high capacity services right to the enterprises that need them most, across a larger number of key business locations throughout the UK. Quite simply, with Project Edge, our tried and tested services will now be available to a total of 200,000 metropolitan business postcodes.
This is the first phase of an ambitious and significant investment in our network that will enable us to deliver innovative yet cost-effective services to the growing number of UK enterprises that simply can’t contemplate any kind of infrastructure outage. With more to come over the coming months from Project Edge, stay tuned for the next stage of our major network expansion plan.
