TeliaSonera International Carrier continues expansion of IP network in the US

TeliaSonera International Carrier has yet again increased the possibilities for new and existing customers in the US to benefit from the availability of high quality IP services. Building on customer success, the company increases choice in the Pacific Northwest. More American high-tech businesses have the ability to choose the top three IP global backbone from the telecommunication industry’s Best Wholesale Carrier.

Brendan Ives, Vice President – Sales & Marketing, says, “With the addition of Seattle, our customers have yet more possibilities to connect to our global IP backbone. We now have 35 points-of-presence in 23 US cities and Seattle is our seventh on the West Coast. During the two last years we connected Charlotte, Phoenix, Buffalo, Cleveland and Washington. The increased expansion of the US network is strategically important and will help us to maintain our position as one of the largest global IP carriers. I’m proud to be able to say four of the top five global content providers are US based and loyal customers.”

TeliaSonera International Carrier has a strong history in the US. The company has been active in the US market since 1995 and has a continuous growing US customer base. Apart from adding new PoPs in US cities, TeliaSonera International Carrier has also invested in its high quality global IP, capacity and international voice services portfolio. This has been recognized in new customer wins in the online gaming, content delivery and ISP segments.

“In light of the TeliaSonera group being one of the largest operators in Europe with more than 150 years in the business and over 160 million subscribers, US customers are increasingly turning to us as a competitive alternative for their telecommunications needs.”
