RETN has expanded connectivity in Manchester with new Points of Presence (PoPs) in two data centres.

The company’s new PoPs will be in the Equinix and Datum (previously Teledata) data centres, and are part of RETN’s plan to bring its suite of services closer to businesses across the north of the UK.

According to RETN, the expansion follows a series of investments in its international backbone, with network deployments in Western, Northern and Central Europe and Asia.

RETN’s connectivity ring will link Manchester to existing networks in London, Slough, Dublin, and mainland Europe via the Paris Crosslake subsea cable, London-Amsterdam, and London-USA.

“Manchester’s status as a key digital hub aligns with RETN’s mission to improve communication and connectivity, underpinned by our core principles of transparency, flexibility, agility, and responsiveness. By expanding our services in this dynamic city, we’re dedicated to offering secure, private, and reliable connectivity solutions that empower both local and international communities, driving growth and innovation in every market we serve,” said Chris Elliott, UK Commercial Director at RETN.

Services offered include Layer 3 IP Transit, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) and Layer 2 VPN Ethernet Services, to provide redundant access to RETN’s 870+ points of presence across Europe and Asia.
