Tampnet Carrier and AFIBER Partner to Enhance Connectivity for Broadcasting and Media in Europe

Tampnet Carrier, a leading provider of high-capacity, low-latency connectivity in Northern Europe, has unveiled a new partnership with AFIBER, a Netherlands-based connectivity provider. Renowned for their high-quality and reliable services, both entities ensure customers along these new routes continue to benefit from top-notch services with unmatched uptime.

Amsterdam and Hilversum serve as crucial communication and interconnection hubs for the Entertainment, Media, and Broadcasting industries in Europe, with many transmitting data to key data centers worldwide. With clients such as RTL, Talpa, Zayo, Liberty Global, Red Bee Media, and others, AFIBER is the preferred network provider for solutions in high demand.

AFIBER clients gain direct access to Tampnet’s extensive and reliable North Sea and European networks, providing fast, reliable, and scalable connectivity throughout Europe, the UK, and the Nordic countries. AFIBER also gains access to Tampnet’s new NORFEST route, featuring the latest carbon-neutral data centers along the Norwegian coast.

This collaboration facilitates expansion in Northern Europe, addressing the rising market demand for broadcasting, streaming media, AI, and online gaming. By integrating Tampnet’s extensive networks with AFIBER’s robust Dutch optical network, the partnership ensures unparalleled service and uptime for customers requiring low latency and high availability via fully redundant routes.

Tampnet’s routes to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, London, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt, combined with AFIBER’s extensive and diverse network in the region, will add dozens of data centers to coverage, providing greater speed and scalability to meet the growing demand for point-to-point connectivity with specific requirements for media, broadcasting, streaming, and CDN applications.
