CeltixConnect: The most diverse route linking Ireland - UK

CeltixConnect extends from East Point Business Park, Dublin, Ireland to Holyhead, Wales, UK. It connects to the T50, Dublin’s major metropolitan network which links to all the key business districts, data centres and business parks. Utilising the Welsh Government's open access network Fibrespeed, CeltixConnect links into its own exchange at Halmer End called the Staffordshire Gateway. This highly strategic gateway facilitates dark fibre connections northwards to Manchester, directly southwards to London or onwards to Europe over multiple third party dark fibre providers through SFN’s Partner Network Programme.
