This means that there will be a “seamless network experience” from London, through to Manchester and towards central Europe.

“Having euNetworks connected to MediaCityUK enables further growth and flexibility in the connectivity options to and from Manchester,” explained Mark Senior, MD of dock10.

“We welcome euNetworks to the site and look forward to working together more closely to support the flow of media content delivery. Their technical expertise and understanding of what the media community needs is a great addition.”

Media Connect launched in September last year and the company has invested in connections to key media areas around Europe, including West London, Soho and Hilversum in the Netherlands.

“This investment increases the reach of our network and importantly, diverse routes for our customers into Manchester and beyond,” added Kevin Dean, chief marketing officer of euNetworks.

“Owning and managing our own network, with direct fibre connection into key sites and data centres, means we can support the bandwidth requirements of our customer’s today as well as plan for future bandwidth demands as they seek to push more of their workflow online to the cloud.”
