13th November 2023.- Lyntia, a leading neutral operator in dark fiber and capacity services, enters the Portuguese transmission market, further strengthening its leadership position in the Iberian market. The company has reached a strategic agreement with Gigas, through its Portuguese subsidiary ONI, to acquire part of its fiber assets in Portugal, thus ensuring an additional proprietary terrestrial fiber network of 1,100 kilometers further strengthening its position in the Iberian Peninsula. The acquisition includes strategic routes that connect Portugal’s main cities (Lisbon, Porto, Braga, Sines, and others), to landing stations, data centers, and fiber assets in Spain.


This expansion will allow lyntia to offer high-quality, low-latency, and high-capacity fully integrated connectivity solutions throughout the Iberian Peninsula. The acquisition will support the company’s growth in the region and strengthen its presence in the Southern European connectivity market. The acquisition, alongside lyntia’s partnership with Nokia (allowing use of its DWDM network), will allow the firm to offer colocation services through 65 Points of Presence and end-to-end capacity services throughout the Iberian Peninsula, with more than additional 2.800 km in Portugal connecting main cities in both countries. “This acquisition is a significant step in lyntia’s growth strategy, as we invest in a new market to provide additional value to our customers,” said Jose Antonio Lopez, CEO of lyntia.


“Lyntia continues executing an ambitious deployment plan to connect the landing stations of submarine cables in the Iberian Peninsula (Lisbon, Sines, Bilbao, Barcelona, and Santander) with main Data centres & Cloud Regions, ensuring minimal latency, optimal quality, and capacity. The goal is to become, through our unique infrastructure network, the key partner for the Telco and Cloud industry in the transition to the digital era, contributing to environmental sustainability in Southern Europe.”
