UK based MVNO, Lebara Mobile has signed a data connectivity contract with Geo Networks. The deal, for an initial period of three years, will see Geo provide Lebara with a 70km diverse ring connecting its network to three data centres across London, from Telehouse North, to London Docklands (Sovereign House) through to North London (Powergate).
Lebara Chief Technology Officer, Shyam Mardikar, commented, "Geo's dark fibre gives us an unprecedented level of control over our network and what we use it for, which isn't usually an option for an MVNO. This means we can expand how and when we need to. Laying the fibre in London's sewer network delivers a high level of security and added peace of mind."
The fibre circuits running between the three data centres are dedicated and, as with all Geo's dedicated fibre, will solely carry Lebara Mobile traffic.
