SSE Enterprise Telecoms adds 30 PoPs to UK network

British connectivity and data centre services provider SSE Enterprise Telecoms has expanded its fibre network reach across the UK by becoming available at an extra 30 BT exchanges.

The company has initiated the second phase of its ‘Project Edge’ expanding its Ethernet network to a further 58,000 business postcodes.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ customers can now purchase additional Ethernet services directly from the provider after comparing and analysing Ethernet quotes through SSE’s LiveQuote online engine.

‘Edge 2’ has now expanded the company’s footprint to Aberdeen Denburn, Aylesbury, Birmingham Midland, Bolton, Bradford, Chelmsford, Colchester, Darlington, Doncaster, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Douglas, Harrogate, High Wycombe, Inverness, Ipswich, Leicester Montford, Lincoln, Lochnagar, Loughborough, Maidstone, Newcastle, Norwich, Oldham, Oxford, Peterborough, Rochdale, Sheffield Attercliffe, Sheffield, Stockton and York.

With this latest expansion, the company now counts more than 13,700km and 232 Point of Presence (PoP) of fibre network across the country.

A further four BT exchanges, located in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Wokingham and Farnborough, will be added by the end of Q2 2016.

The first phase of the project was announced in November 2013 and brought 54 exchanges on to SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ network, serving 200,000 business postcodes primarily in the London area.

With the addition of 34 new PoPs in 2016, the company will increase the number of serviced postcodes to more than 258,000.

Colin Sempill, MD at SSE Enterprise Telecoms, said: "With 30 new exchanges now live as part of Edge 2, and more to come within the next few months, organisations can now benefit from even greater access to our high quality Ethernet services, regardless of where they are in the country."
