LONDON, February 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
NTT Communications [http://www.eu.ntt.com/jp/index.html ] (NTT Com) in Europe, a
member of the NTT Group – the number one Fortune Global 500 telecommunications company -
has increased its global IP network reach and capacity into the Nordics, with the opening
of a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Stockholm.
Based in TelecityGroup’s data center in Stockholm, expansion into this key market
shows NTT Com’s commitment to providing an extended network for its customers coming into
and out of Europe. The PoP is a new, key market for NTT Com and will provide high-speed,
reliable Internet connectivity on its high quality, Tier-1 Global IP Network.
Not only will it reach customers in Sweden, but will extend to customers in the wider
Nordic region, Russia and the Baltic countries; Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, enabling
them to provide robust resilient services to its customers. This expansion provides more
options for carriers, ISP’s and direct customers by increasing the portfolio of
connectivity routes available.
Clive Hamilton, Head of Global IP Network in Europe said, “This PoP opens up a whole
new region for NTT Com. We can provide extended reach with new and existing customers in
the Nordics to the rest of the world.” Hamilton continues, “The Nordic region is one of
the most stable and prosperous economies in Europe supported by thriving manufacturing and
service industries. This additional region will help organizations to gain greater
competitive advantage in their global operations and connect with growth opportunities in
the Asian market.”
Since the beginning of 2012, NTT Communications has shown persistent and stable growth
in the Central and Eastern European carrier and IP markets. Now totalling 30 PoP location
buildings overall, in the last 12 months, NTT Communications has added an additional 10
PoP locaton buildings in Europe, and has entered new markets in Brussels, Bucharest,

facility, Niclas Sanfridsson, Managing Director of TelecityGroup Sweden said, “NTT chose
us for our network availability, high levels of physical and environmental resilience,
security excellence and flexibility. TelecityGroup already works with NTT in the UK and
Netherlands so we are excited that they have chosen to widen their reach into the Nordic
regions by locating in TelecityGroup’s highly connected Stockholm data center.”
