Neo network is now ahead with the construction of its fourth Access network in London.

The entire Metro Network Expansion project comprises 60 km of Neos Network national fiber footprint.
Benefits to the customers
Neos Networks' strategic entry into last-mile access implies that the corporation no longer needs to rely on external connectivity across these business hubs. As a result, it can now deliver to its customers with improved timescales and lower costs to deliver high-quality services associated with the company's nationwide UK backbone business network.
Customers of Neos Networks will continue to receive the same level of commitment that they expect from the company, but with an easier path for upgrading, a quicker response for break fixes, and network features that support their needs and aspirations for expansion.
