The number of Geo Networks contracts signed with media firms has risen by 50% year on year, up from seven deals in 2011.

“Last year, we noted that the media sector was evolving in its use of network and bandwidth as a consequence of us all demanding more content across a wider range of devices,” said Geo sales director Will Pitt.

Geo recently built on its deal to provide ITV with a national network by connecting ITV’s UK network to its presence in MediaCityUK and its Coronation Street facility on Trafford Wharf Road, Salford.
