Colt claims second place in Vertical System Group’s Ethernet Leaderboard

Following on from the success of coming second in VSG’s 2020 Ethernet Leaderboard, Colt has continued its streak of claiming silver in this year’s leaderboard too – maintaining the position consistently since 2018.

The analysts focus on the telecommunications industry, setting the industry benchmark by ranking network providers that own at least 4% of billable retail ports outside of their respective home countries.

Last year showed that the effects of the pandemic have irreversibly changed how we work. Scalable bandwidth has become commonplace as enterprises collaborate across borders and oceans. At the same time, businesses continue to invest in systems which enable hybrid working – a trend that increases in popularity year on year. As the world becomes more reliant on systems like SD WAN and utilises on-demand connectivity, it is rewarding to know that customers and industry analysts consider Colt one of the industry’s most valued partners.
