Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada, Jan. 18 -- 360networks, a provider of broadband network services, announced that it has acquired dark fiber on metropolitan networks in Munich, Berlin and Zurich. The company purchased the dark fiber from Carrier1 International S.A., a European provider of end-to-end Internet, voice, bandwidth, data center and access solutions to large users of communications services.
    "These metropolitan networks provide us with a deeper reach into three important business centers and offer our customers in these areas enhanced access to our global network," said Ashwin Chitamun, 360networks' vice-president of its European operations. "The networks are complementary to our long-haul routes in Germany and Switzerland, and represent an important advancement for our European network."
    The network in Munich covers 20 km and is scheduled for completion by mid-2001. The 75-km Berlin network and the 25-km Zurich network will be completed by the end of the year. Certain segments of all three metropolitan networks, however, will be activated at earlier dates.
