I rest my case(s)
As the world becomes more interconnected, multi-tenant environments are becoming increasingly popular for start-ups and scale-ups. A multi-tenant environment is one in which multiple companies build connections and share infrastructure, skills, knowledge and/or resources. This approach has become popular among start-ups due to its many benefits, including reduced costs, increased flexibility and improved scalability,
One of the most important considerations for businesses operating in multi-tenant enviroments is their internet connectivity. In today's digital age, internet access is essential for business success, and high-speed optical fiber connections have become the gold standard for businesses that rely on the internet to conduct their operations.
For start-ups, in particular, the need for reliable, high-speed internet is critical. Start-ups often rely on cloud-based services and online tools to manage their operations, collaborate with team memmbers, and connect with customers. Without fast and reliable internet access, these essential functions can grind to a halt, leading to lost productivity, missed opportunities, and lost revenue.
Although it is seen by most as a long-term investment in the success of the company, both the extremely high installation costs and monthly subscription costs make it financially unfeasible for most (smaller) companies to have their own fiber connection installed.
But there is good news for perhaps two of the most vibrant start-up ecosystems in the Netherlands. Zerospace has built its own fiber optic network, mainly concentrated in the Riekerpolder (Amsterdam) and in the Binckhorst (The Hague), which services hundreds or even thousands of, often young, companies with extremely low latency and fast symmetrical connections.
