Telecommunication companies of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have jointly established a cross-Baltic data transmission network - Baltic Optical Network which provides international companies and their cooperation partners with opportunities for connecting and developing a high quality data communication network.
The Baltic Optical Network (BON) is an alliance established in August 2002 on the basis of the networks of telecommunications companies in the Baltic States, and operates as a fibre-optical telecommunications network covering the whole region. Thanks to the connection with the telecommunications networks located in neighbouring states, BON is also the only large-telecommunications network running through the region uniting Southern Europe with Scandinavia and Russia.
The aim of BON is to be the most reliable and productive partner of the Baltic telecommunication companies and IT companies and to render high-quality, large-scale data and voice communication transmission services to local and international companies operating in the field of telecommunications and information technologies.
In view of the needs of its current and potential corporate and wholesale customers, BON provides modern technologies enabling access to transmission capacity speeds of up to 10 Gbps both, between the main nodal points of telecommunications in the region and in the transit running through the region.
BON offers one of the widest transmission networks in the Baltic States ensuring that practically any city or town of the Baltic States can connect to the network.
BON has joined the For Connecting Europe alliance (4cE) aimed at providing modern and high quality telecommunication services in Europe.
4cE is a powerful alliance of innovative European network operators,
dedicated to providing services to carriers, ISPs, ASPs and large international companies (corporate customers). Customers are offered interconnections with the necessary telecommunications operator or a connection to a nodal point.
