EQT Infrastructure accelerates expansion in European fibre market

Friday 14 June 2019 | 11:10 CET | Author: Erik Compter | Background
EQT Infrastructure is expanding its footprint across Europe with the acquisition of Swedish fibre operator IP-Only. At the same time, the Norwegian fibre company Broadnet will change name to GlobalConnect, following its merger with the EQT company of the same name active in Denmark and northern Germany. It appears likely that IP-Only will become part of the same group, and possible also EQT Infrastructure's activities in the Netherlands.
