Betfair Joins Geo Networks Online Customer Base

By Maria McCoyGoogle

Geo Networks, a leader in the online casino games world and provider of dedicated fiber networks, signed a second top online casino games company, Betfair, as its newest addition to its growing consumer base. Geo announced its big break into the online casino games industry with a national network contract for bet365 last year.

Geo will be Betfair’s supplier of a fiber network that will link two data centers in London with the goal of improving the best online casino company’s IP transit connectivity and link its data centers in Ireland to UK points of presence. Betfair will manage its own  infrastructure with Geo’s help based on a three-year agreement.

Tim Turner, Head of Global Infrastructure Services at Betfair, stated, “Providing our customers with the lowest latency connectivity is critical to the success of our business. Our key goals are ensuring network redundancy, reducing latency and improving reliability, on fiber that we can rely on to process today’s extremely high volumes of transactions, and scale with us tomorrow and beyond. Geo’s fiber means that we can connect with multiple carriers, transiting customers to our website based in Ireland, providing a smooth end-user experience.”

Geo’s Online Sales Director, Andy Tipping, provided his take as well, “Geo epitomizes everything that gaming and other online organizations need from a fiber operator, with our legacy-free, UK-wide network, which will soon provide the lowest latency London to Dublin connection. We are delighted to welcome Betfair to our growing list of high profile online organizations.”
