“Our close collaboration with Enet allows its Irish customer base secure access to the EXA high-capacity network where they most need connectivity, predominantly into Europe in line with the increased growth and bandwidth demands we are seeing in today’s market. We are committed to partnerships that enable customers to access to our expansive network, and are also committed to investing in strategic expansions and further optimisations and enhancements of our critical subsea and terrestrial infrastructure.”
