Press Release Viatel to relaunch in the enterprise market following acquisition by the Digiweb Group Company relaunch amid economic recession proves Irish and European business success story 10th October, 2013 – Source: Viatel Company

Viatel, the pan-European full-service telecommunications provider, has today announced the details of its brand relaunch, including its return to the enterprise market, enhanced financial resources and changes to its management team. Having previously been trading under the VTL Wavenet brand, exclusively within the wholesale market, Viatel will now offer an extended range of telecommunications services as part of its recent acquisition by the Dublin-based Digiweb Group. From 1st October 2013, the expanded Digiweb Group will operate under two separate brand identities in order to serve its distinct and dedicated customer groups. Business customers including enterprise, government and wholesale businesses globally,will be served under the relaunched Viatel brand while consumer, residential and Small Business customers (predominantly in Ireland and Belgium) will be served under the Digiweb brand. “Despite the current economic climate, there’s great cause for optimism in the telecommunications industry. Viatel’s relaunch proves as much,” said Digiweb Group CEO, Colm Piercy. “Tales of doom and gloom fill the business pages today and more success stories like Viatel’s are needed to change this narrative.” Viatel is one of Europe’s largest network owners and provides high capacity, low latency and cost effective communications solutions for some of the largest telecommunications, financial and corporate blue-chip companies throughout the continent. Viatel’s management structure has always been designed to give customers direct access to the executive level and it provides extensive support for its customers’ business requirements. This kind of responsiveness sets it apart from its competitors and this will continue to be the case following the relaunch. Existing customers should experience minimal disruption to everyday operations with no changes in the way that they receive services, no change to customers’ current project managers and no changes to the way their services are currently supported. There will, however, be a number of positive changes as part of the relaunch, as a means of harnessing the strengths and capabilities of both Digiweb and Viatel. • Extra financial resources – With revenues of $78 million, the Digiweb Group generates operating profits exceeding $10 million annually. Backed by Morgan Stanley, a 33% shareholder in the Digiweb Group, Viatel’s financial resources have received a significant boost as part of the acquisition and subsequent relaunch • New executive team / retention of key senior figures – The Digiweb Group has a combined workforce of 200 and, since the acquisition, Viatel has seen the arrival of a number of accomplished senior figures. The likes of Colm Piercy, Digiweb Group CEO, will be lending his vast experience to the Viatel business and outgoing Viatel CEO, Lucy Woods – who was integral to the success of VTLWaveNet – has taken a new position on the Digiweb Group board of directors •New enterprise services – Having previously sold exclusively to wholesale markets, Viatel will also now service larger enterprise customers, where it expects a substantial uptake of its services. Viatel predicts an explosion in high bandwidth connectivity demand within the European enterprise market and the relaunch puts it in an ideal position to take advantage of this trend. Viatel’s business and wholesale services now include high capacity-low latency bandwidth, colocation, fully managed voice, wavelength, dark fibre, VPN, metro Ethernet, MPLS, VPLS and disaster recovery connectivity .

Press Release In addition to these key changes, Viatel is now extending its services to Ireland, with the majority of Digiweb enterprise customers transferring to Viatel with immediate effect. This allows these customers to benefit from the industry leading services available from Viatel and its pan-European network reach. Furthermore, this will also give Viatel access to the many global brands based in or operating from Ireland. Including Ireland, Viatel now has over 8,500km of wholly owned fibre infrastructure spanning eight countries and 35 cities, and connecting over 120 european data centres.1 “The enterprise telecoms market in Europe is in a constant state of change,” adds Piercy. “Never has there been a better time for a company like Viatel to enter into this market and we are excited about the possibilities it holds. Digital trends such as cloud computing show no signs of slowing and businesses have never been more dependent on their networks. This is not unique to one particular country or region either, we see the appeal of Viatel’s industry leading enterprise services spreading right across our European network and to a whole range of different industries and businesses. “The relaunch is also terrific news for our existing customers and shareholders. This new combination of products, skills and expertise should prove a winning formula. It gives Viatel great opportunities to expand and add value, but also allows us to enhance the services our customers depend on us for. Notes for editors Colm Piercy, Digiweb Group CEO, is available for interview to discuss the relaunch and Digiweb acquisition.

Telefónica confirms Czech exit with sale to PPF 5th Nov 2013

Spain’s Telefónica has confirmed that it is to exit the Czech and Slovak Republics through the sale of its holdings in the markets to Czech investment group PPF. Telefónica said in October that it was exploring its options in the Czech Republic, as part of a wider process of withdrawal from non-core markets. The Spanish incumbent holds just over 70 per cent of Telefónica Czech Republic, which includes the Slovak operation, with the remainder held by private and institutional investors. In an announcement made November 5th the firm said it would sell a 65.9 per cent stake in the Czech busi-

ness to PPF for €2.47bn. It will retain a 4.9 per cent share in the business and remain an “industrial and commercial partner” of the operation for the next four years. The O2 brand will remain in use in the Czech and Slovak Republics for a maximum of four years, Telefónica said. Telefónica, which built a substantial debt pile investing in Latin America, has pledged to cut debt to below €47bn by the end of 2013, partly through disposal of non-core assets. Earlier this year it announced that it had slashed debt by €10bn in the twelve months to the end of June, following disposals in Central America and

Inversis and its exit from the Irish market through the sale of its assets there to Hutchison’s 3. “It is anticipated that this transaction will have a positive impact reducing Telefónica Group’s net debt by approximately €2.685bn which will enable Telefónica to meet its net financial debt guidance by year end,” the firm said in a statement. Meanwhile its purchase of Dutch incumbent KPN’s German operation E-Plus was approved in October by KPN shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting. In a deal sweetened to win their backing, Telefónica is paying

€5bn in cash and a 20.5 per cent stake in Telefónica Deutschland post transaction. The total value of the deal is €8.55bn. O2 Czech Republic holds second place in the mobile market, with 5.1 million subscriptions, according to estimates from Informa’s WCIS+. T-Mobile leads the market with 5.8 million while Vodafone is in third place with 3.3 million. The firm is third of three in the Slovak Republic mobile market, with 1.54 million users according to WCIS+ estimates, behind TMobile with 2.26 million subscriptions and Orange with 2.76 million.

Vodacom Denies Botswana Investment Rumours Published on: 5th Nov 2013

South Africa based Vodacom has refuted reports that it is in talks to take a stake in Botswana based BeMobile. There had been media reports late last week that the South African firm was either in a technology sharing agreement with BeMobile or had agreed to buy a stake in the firm.

The denial leaves BeMobile though in a difficult situation as the state-owned company is said to be struggling to compete with its more nimble private competitors and is said to be looking for a technology partner to assist it. BeMobile's parent company, Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC) is currently working on plans for a privatisation that would see a minority of its shares sold to the public.

Telecity builds vendor neutral cloud services hub 4th Nov 2013

European builder of carrierneutral datacentres, TelecityGroup, on Monday unveiled a “cloud neutral” hub platform designed to enable users to execute private, hybrid and public cloud deployments through direct connections with cloud and IT service providers. The Cloud-IX platform will be rolled out to customers located in any of TelecityGroup’s facilities across Europe, providing direct connectivity with leading cloud providers including Amazon Web Services; iland (a VMware partner); CSC; Fujitsu and Outsourcery. The platform aims to enable customers to maximise the efficiency, flexibility and security of the hybrid cloud by establishing dedicated network connections from their private or managed infrastructure into any of the cloud providers that are part of the platform, avoiding restrictions due to data sov-

ereignty or vendor lock in. Michael Tobin, CEO of TelecityGroup said: “Businesses across Europe are looking at ways they can maximise the power of the cloud to enhance the performance of their core platforms, manage big data with ease, and deliver enhanced and scalable service offerings; all against the background of ever increasing expectations in terms of security, auditability and data sovereignty. At the same time, they have the traditional challenges of maintaining service levels and maximising the benefit of existing IT investments. Key to solving this challenge is building flexible solutions that utilise the elasticity and economic benefits of the public cloud alongside existing IT infrastructure, all with direct connectivity into local and international carriers.”

Telenor Signs Agreement with the Hungarian Government 6th Nov 2013

In the next few years, Telenor said that it plans to invest about HUF 10 billion in broadband mobile Internet network development to promote wide-spread Internet access, contribute to economic growth and bridge the digital divide for rural communities.

Carrier Call Carrier Call was founded in 2003 in Switzerland with the goal to revolutionize the way, telecommunication carriers work in the international and national interconnect wholesale business. The company's award winning XCarrier® platform enables operators to manage their inter-carrier trading relationships more effectively. Every carrier knows that the systems which underpin the trading and exchange of international voice traffic are exceedingly complex. But few appreciate the deep linkages that exist between all these business processes and systems. Because these systems are so closely intertwined, a single error in one application can have serious implications further on down the line. Carrier Call understands these linkages - the company is staffed with highly experienced telecoms software executives and has developed from scratch a solution that can manage all voice traffic processes in one package.
