We extended our reach by adding new DE-CIX access sites all over Europe with euNetworks, successfully moved a core node in Frankfurt, and made the AS112 service availabel in Marseille. You can check out here at which sites in more than 450 cities worldwide you can either access DE-CIX directly or get conneted via a DE-CIX reseller.
