Hyperscale Data centre provider Colt has established, new Point-of-Presence (PoPs) in Seoul, South Korea.
The expansion sees Colt establish the network hubs in four key carrier-neutral data centres in the Seoul Metropolitan area and deliver the speeds of up to 40G Ethernet Service, in addition to providing cost-effective local coverage in the South Korean capital and other major cities, the company said in a statement. With this network expansion, enterprises in South Korea now have access to cost effective, low latency connectivity services from Colt Technology Services.
Masato Hoshino, Representative Director & President/Head of Asia said:
“The expansion of our network into South Korea highlights our continued investment in the Asia-Pacific region including Korea, and puts Colt in a unique position, given our strong presence in Europe and Asia, combined with the data centre infrastructure in Seoul with new POPs in four major Data Centers. This means that we’re well placed to help domestic companies in Korea who are looking to extend their reach globally, as well as multi-national companies entering the Korean market, with cost-competitive and reliable connectivity.”
Aimed at enterprise customers, it expands the intelligent Colt IQ Network, which already has 29,000 on-net buildings and over 1000 data centres across Europe, Asia and North America’s largest business hubs, and enables customers to expand their businesses globally with Colt. The Colt IQ Network connects 1000+ data centres and over 29,000 on net buildings across Europe, Asia and North America’s largest business hubs.

We’ve recently achieved our watertight milestone and are in the process of completing the façade for this 45MW hyperscale facility,” the company said in a LinkedIn post.
