HGC has launched its third point-of-presence (PoP) in Bangkok, Thailand! This new investment in Thailand is the latest example of HGC’s strategy of continuously extending meshed international network coverage in ASEAN regions, enabling business customers to navigate the digital economy.
Why did HGC decide to expand its footprint into Bangkok? The new HGC PoP was launched to meet the growing demand for connectivity and support rapidly growing traffic patterns in e-commerce across Asian capital markets. Located at a carrier-neutral data centre, the new PoP serves international carriers and service providers, providing more direct connectivity options for latency-sensitive customers including the financial sector, OTT such as gaming and content providers that require diverse high bandwidth transit between Thailand and the rest of the world to deliver high quality digital experience.
The new PoP in Thailand also further extends HGC’s footprint expansion in the densely interconnected ecosystems in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). It not only enhances HGC’s Asian presence but also cements its strategic expansion in the Indochina market with existing PoPs in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Bangladesh.
Chirawat Mahawat, HGC’s Vice President, Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) said, “The expansion allows HGC to provide low latency and high bandwidth solutions, which serves new demands in the industry, coping with the boost in OTT adoption and high bandwidth consumption. On top of the PoP infrastructure, we have also activated a direct route high-bandwidth backbone to Hong Kong and Singapore, making this new PoP a truly diversified network. Our MNC clients in Thailand can also benefit from transaction options in local currency, as well as our knowhow in business environment and compliance, etc. 2020 is a challenging year for all business. This new infrastructure will ensure HGC can further assist and support our clients with our fully-fledged telecom services to achieve their business goals.”
