The news that U.S.-based telecommunications company CenturyLink has merged its services with Irish-based Computer Networks Solutions Provider AquaComms Ltd. was met with a wide degree of appreciation, while it was being announced to the media on 20th of July 2016. The joint announcement heralded a new age of cooperation between the two transatlantic companies as they join hands in a remarkable venture to expand the Broadband capacity between The United States Of America and The United Kingdom.
Most Americans have already heard of and experienced the services rendered by CenturyLink, the American-owned telecommunications company headquartered in Monroe, Louisiana. Glen F. Post has been at the helm of CenturyLink as its Chief Executive Officer since 1992, and has been witness to the astounding changes technology has brought to the world since then. CenturyLink prides itself on the ability to provide high-speed internet to people living across The United States.
It achieved yet another milestone when it was successful in activating two 100 GB links between the transatlantic cities of London and New York. The help and resources needed to undertake this huge venture was provided by a company that does its operations across the wide Atlantic Ocean-AquaComms Limited.
This Irish-based company specializing in sub-sea telecommunications has been providing a variety of networking solutions to IT companies, both locally and globally. Their core area of service is building subsea fiber optics. As such they are the proud owners of CeltixConnect (the most advanced sub-sea telecommunications network in Europe) and also AEConnect (one of the first under-sea transatlantic cables to be built).
Both these companies joined hands to provide users on both side of the Atlantic, faster and more reliable internet access. This is due to the fact that the London-to-NY internet pathway is the 2nd largest Internet traffic route in the whole wide world.
