Internexa claims 2,577km backbone network in Argentina

25 Nov 2014

Latin American backbone network operator Internexa has confirmed that its Argentinean infrastructure now spans 2,577km. Internexa, which launched in Argentina in 2012, currently covers the urban clusters of Buenos Aires, Rio Primero, Arroyito, Rafaela, Santo Tome, Federal, Chajari, Cordoba and Mendoza. The company aims to expand its network infrastructure to reach the Entre Rios and San Luis provinces in 2015.

TeleGeography notes that Internexa, which leverages electricity transmission networks for connectivity, presides over a South American network that spans 21,000km across Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. The company launched in Colombia in 2001, with an initial 1,831km deployment covering Medellin, Bogota, Cali, Manizales, Pereira, Popayan, Tunja, Bucaramanga, Barranquilla, Sincelejo, Monteria, Riohacha, Santa Marta and Valledupar. Meanwhile, Internexa entered Ecuador in 2003 through a partnership with Transelectric, before increasing its presence across the continent in the ensuing years. In November 2013 Internexa unveiled the USD88 million acquisition of NQT, a wholesale carrier based in Rio de Janeiro. Going forward, the company seeks to extend its reach to Central America, via a tie-up with the USD500 million Red de Fibra Optica Centroamericana (REDCA) initiative.
