    Global Cloud Xchange (“GCX”) is a leading global data communications service provider and owner of one of the world’s largest private subsea fibre optic networks. The business provides high-bandwidth connectivity to a range of customers including over-the-top content providers, telecom carriers, new media providers and enterprises.

    GCX’s 66,000km of cables span from North America to Asia. It is particularly strong on the Europe-Asia and Intra-Asia routes where it is well positioned to capitalise on growth opportunities and serve the exponentially growing demand for data traffic.

    Recent developments

    The business is performing in line with expectations; lease revenues have grown strongly as the business prioritises recurring revenues over one-off cash IRU sales.

    GCX is currently examining several opportunities to invest in new cables in the Middle East which would provide synergies with its existing network.
