South Boston, VA Sept. 23, 2013 – Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (MBC), a successful wholesale open-access network transport provider, announced today its network expansion in the mid-Atlantic region with connections in Washington and Richmond, Virginia.

MBC has expanded the reach of its advanced open-access transport network with new Points of Presence (POP) locations at the CoreSite data center at 1275 K Street in Washington, DC and the QTS data center at 6000 Technology Boulevard, Richmond, Virginia. These expanded POP locations will enable MBC to provide wholesale transport services to its carrier customers as well as enable additional connectivity options.

MBC has extended their robust Infinera DTN network into these new interconnection facilities. MBC’s Infinera network enables rapid provisioning for high bandwidth transport services, and provides low latency transport connections to southern Virginia and MBC interconnection facilities in the Carolina’s and Georgia.

“We are pleased to work with MBC to expand their network into Washington, DC,” said Mark Showalter, Sr. Director of Communications at Infinera. “Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network enables MBC to rapidly deploy 10G and 100G connectivity to both small and large service providers in the region.”

“Our goal of providing a robust open-access wholesale transport network for carriers continues to pay dividends for our region,” said Tad Deriso, President and CEO of MBC.  “Creating more on-net connections between carrier neutral data centers in major markets and our Southern Virginia region supports our mission of enhancing our regional competitive advantage with communications infrastructure.”
