RETN supercharges Polish network routes to optimise European connectivity

RETN has announced three significant enhancements to its network infrastructure in Poland, improving Internet connectivity across Central and Eastern Europe.

New Biala Podlaska-Lublin route

RETN has introduced 150km of new fibre between Biala Podlaska and Lublin, creating a more direct pathway from the Baltics to Southern Europe. This route avoids the congestion-prone Warsaw area, mitigating frequent disruptions from highway construction-related cable cuts.

This strategic addition bolsters network reliability and enhances route diversity, ensuring more robust connectivity for customers. 

Lupowo-Gorzow joins the TRANSKZ Eurasian Highway

RETN has successfully completed the interconnection of its Northern and Southern network routes at a key juncture near the Poland-Germany border. Although comprising just a few kilometres, this enhancement is crucial for diversifying routing options and enhancing network resilience. Importantly, this development improves latency on the TRANSKZ route (ultra-low latency terrestrial connecting Europe to Asia) between Latvia and Germany, reducing round-trip time by 0.73 milliseconds. 

Warsaw Metro network expansion

RETN has expanded its Warsaw metro fibre network with alternative connectivity options to bypass traditional congestion points such as the LIM building and major data centres like LIM DC and Equinix WA1 – where most international fibre routes and carriers typically converge.

To address the need for diversified and resilient network infrastructure, RETN can now provide high-capacity to Warsaw offering customers this enhanced flexibility and reliability.

This enhancement is a key component of RETN’s ongoing commitment to meet the increasing demand for robust communications solutions in major urban centres, mitigating potential single points of failure and supporting the continuous growth of digital services in Warsaw. 

“These network upgrades significantly elevate our service capabilities not just in Poland but across Europe. By strengthening our infrastructure, we ensure that RETN continues to be at the forefront of providing advanced, efficient networking solutions that meet the evolving needs of our international customers,” said Amy Bajer, Managing Director at RETN Poland & CEE.
