20 years of wait over.

Layer23 broadens the Rucphen countryside with Regio-Glasvezel fiber through Colt DCS.

Netherlands, December 2018.

Colt DCS announces its new partnership with Regio-Glasvezel, a carrier services provider for organizations and business parks who design, construct and operate fiber optic infrastructure.

After almost 20 years of wait Breedband Buitengebied Rucphen (Broadband Countryside Rucphen) will provide the countryside with super-fast fiber optic network connections spanning 120km. The area covers several nodes including the villages of Rucphen, Schijf, Sprundel, Sint Willebrord and Zegge, where hundreds of connections are going to be realized.

Preparations for the construction of the new fiber optic network are now in full swing, providing the opportunity to connect local companies situated around Business Parc Majoppeveld-Zuid, Roosendaal.

“With online presence becoming ever-increasingly important, to be always on, always connected and always ready is imperative for businesses and individuals to go about their lives; whether managing data traffic across the internet, telephony, cloud, back-up, VoIP and many other online applications. There is no continuity without connectivity.” says Fred da Graça, Senior Account Manager and Co-Owner at Layer23, leading the project on behalf of Regio-Glasvezel.

Graça continues, “Breedband Buitengebied Rucphen had several suppliers for consideration to backhaul the countryside, but quickly decided to select Colt Data Centre Services facility in Roosendaal for the prime location, knowledgeable and speedy contributions from the Colt DCS team, the availability for future expansions and the high-quality infrastructure of their Tier 3 data center."

"At Colt DCS we are committed towards putting customers first. With Regio-Glasvezel entering our Roosendaal Tier 3 Data Centre as a new carrier, we aspire to welcome and provision support for more organisations in the surrounding areas access fiber optic networks to support their every day needs."

Dodo Malic - Director EU Direct Sales

Until the end of November, contractors will be visiting local registered addresses within the surrounding areas to plan implementation. After that, a definitive schedule will be produced for upgrade.

Expectations for the first houses to be connected looks towards March 2019, with the project being complete within the following 12 months much to the delight of local residents.
