Brussels, 27 June 2023 – EuroISPA, the pan-European association of Internet Services Providers Associations, officially welcomed its new Forum member, Worldstream, a Dutch Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider during the Association’s General Meeting in June. With Worldstream’s addition, EuroISPA’s Industry Forum can now rely on eight companies active in the Internet industry to participate in the Association’s activities under an advisory capacity.
EuroISPA is the representative body of Internet Services Providers (ISPs) across the European continent. Founded in 1997, EuroISPA functions as an ‘umbrella’ association representing ISP associations on policy and legislative issues and facilitates the exchange of best practices between members. The association is structured around different, topical, Committees, which allow members to regularly exchange ideas and views on specific policy matters and dossiers. EuroISPA engages at EU level on behalf of its members on a wide range of policy issues, including intermediary liability, data protection, cybersecurity and safer Internet.
Alex de Joode, President of EuroISPA, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Worldstream as the newest addition to the EuroISPA Industry Forum. Thanks to their longstanding expertise, we are sure Worldstream will provide valuable advice to EuroISPA Council members, actively contributing to our discussions on the policy issues impacting the European Internet industry and supporting us in achieving our goal of representing the interests of European ISPs at EU level”.
Worldstream is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider headquartered in Naaldwijk, close to the Hague and Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. Since 2006, Worldstream provides server infrastructure, connectivity, and cloud infrastructure to SMEs, system integrators (SIs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Their services range from customised dedicated servers to private cloud with the inclusion of distributed denial-of-service protection.
Wouter van Zwieten, Chief Legal Operations Officer at Worldstream, stated: “We are extremely glad to join EuroISPA’s Industry Forum. This membership provides us with valuable insights and the opportunity to contribute to discussions by providing input and commenting on proposed regulations, allowing us to explain how certain processes and technologies work, ensuring that the outcomes align with the practical needs of ISPs like us. We believe it is crucial for us to have a strong presence at EU level, and we are looking forward to actively participating in EuroISPA to effectively represent the interests of our industry, as we are firm believers that joint forces make stronger decision-making”.
Worldstream was founded in 2006 by childhood friends with a shared passion for gaming. Dissatisfied with the high costs and unreliability of game servers, they came up with the idea of offering better solutions. Since then, the Westland-based IT company has grown into an international player of IT infrastructure (IaaS).
Worldstream aims to simplify IT infrastructure and make it accessible to all IT decision makers at technology-driven companies. As a provider of data center, hardware, and network services, Worldstream serves various business markets, including Managed Service Providers (MSPs), System Integrators (SIs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and web hosting companies. The key business objective of Worldstream is to give IT decision makers peace of mind by providing high-quality infrastructure, industry-leading service, and strong partnerships that will get them excited about their IT infrastructure again.
