Tampnet Carrier's latest submarine fibre optic cable project is under way!

Providing greater capacity, more redundancy and direct routes along the coast of Norway and into Sweden, the unique and reliable routes generated through the system will provide access to the most in-demand locations. 

This project has been commissioned to enhance routes connecting the UK to Europe via the Nordics, with over 700km of brand new fibre!  

NORFEST has 10 landing points which have been strategically selected to provide connectivity to the most sought-after PoPs and carbon-neutral data centres in the Nordics, with maximum flexibility to ensure robust, reliable and scalable services to meet future demands.

In keeping with Tampnet's stringent quality and performance standards, the new infrastructure will provide reliable, low-latency, high-capacity connectivity to vital Data Centres and PoPs, with unique routing  options to enhance your critical operations.
