Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NYSE:LVLT, news, filings) today announced that it has signed an agreement with the National Museum of American Jewish History, a Philadelphia-based museum dedicated to chronicling the American Jewish experience, to provide the museum with dedicated Internet access (DIA) service in support of the museum’s new interactive digital exhibits and online content.
