Increases customers by 200% between January 2002 and July 2003, for a total of 300, with 70 additions in just the last seven months
September 5, 2003
HANNOVER, Germany -- LambdaNet Communications, a leading European supplier of telecommunications and Internet services today announced that it has achieved a 200% increase in customers for the period January 2002 to July 2003, with the most significant growth period being the last seven months.
Between January and July 2003, LambdaNet connected 70 new corporate and carrier customers to its IP and backbone network. This brings the total number of international customers, which includes Completel, Easynet, Equant, MGN, Telefonica Deutschland GmbH and Vodafone D2, to 300.
While LambdaNet’s customers are predominantly fixed and mobile network operators, ISP, ASP, content providers, media companies and systems integrators, it also specialises in addressing the network and IP capacity requirements of large corporates and public sector organisations. Current corporate customers include e.g. Grenke Leasing AG, Halliburton, and Verlagsgruppe Handelsblatt.
LambdaNet attributes this increase in customers to the extension of its IP/MPLS product portfolio and its penetration of new markets in the UK, Benelux and the USA. The company continues to expand its reach and to improve the scope and quality of its services in response to customer demand. A recent example is the extension of the German network to an additional five cities and the French network to an additional three cities in response to a significant increase in demand for data services in these countries.
In addition to its powerful IP and backbone network, LambdaNet operates Metro Area Networks (MANs) in the 15 European business capitals: London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Marseille, Bordeaux, Strasburg, Lyon, Madrid, Vienna, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Munich, Hamburg and Copenhagen.
“Growing business from existing customers and the signing of so many new contracts, in particular with corporate customers, confirms that we have the most effective business model for the European market, not just in terms of bandwidth connectivity, but also in the management and delivery of IP services,” said Bernie Smedley, CEO, LNG Holdings S.A. “This ability to align the needs of a specific market segment with innovative products and network reach has helped to position LambdaNet as a dependable supplier at both a national and international level.”
“LambdaNet Communications is regarded as a leading provider of comprehensive, high-quality, secure and extremely flexible telecommunications services. Many of our customers have come to us because of our reputation for providing excellent quality of service and our expanding network and impressive year on year growth in terms of customer numbers cements our status as a leading telecommunications carrier.”
LambdaNet’s network now connects customers to more than 50 European and two major US data centres providing European-based businesses with high speed, direct and secure links across Europe and The States.
