TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 20, 2014) - TeraGo Inc. (TSX:TGO) (www.terago.ca), a leading national broadband services and colocation provider to businesses in Canada, announced today that it has established a fibre-optic core in Western Canada through the acquisition of fibre facilities in downtown Vancouver. This fibre connects TeraGo's recently-acquired Vancouver data center facility with several buildings, ensuring secure broadband connectivity between customer locations and the data center.
"Owning this data center-connected fibre gives TeraGo a strong initial position in the strategic Vancouver market," said Stewart Lyons, CEO and President of TeraGo Networks. "The bandwidth need of small and medium businesses will only increase as customers continue to expand their demands for data center services. The Vancouver fibre core establishes direct connection with our existing customers to deliver the best possible service and positions us to sell competitively to new SMB and enterprise customers to whom we connect. This purchase and our recent data center acquisition are strategic investments in TeraGo's future growth, offering us fibre optionality to ensure our customers the best connection for their business."
Earlier this year, TeraGo Networks acquired a data center located in downtown Vancouver as a part of its initiative to offer complementary services to business and enterprise customers. The facility is 7,000 square feet and constructed with 22" thick concrete walls, providing an exceptional level of security.
