AboveNet brings Metro Ethernet, Core Wave services to the London market

AboveNet (NYSE: ABVT) has expanded its Metro Ethernet and dynamic Core Wave services in the London metro market.

The introduction of these services in the London market complement AboveNet's network presence, which currently stretches from Slough through Docklands, including connection points in the city and central London.

Multinational Corporation customers (MNC) that sign up for the new London-based services will be able to get bandwidth in increments beginning at 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 10 Gbps connections in addition to advanced features including privacy, security and jumbo frame support.

AboveNet's London service expansion is part of a broader expansion strategy the service provider is taking to target opportunities in the European business services market.

With this latest network expansion, AboveNet now connects to 35 major data centers in the London metro market and over 400 data centers worldwide. The obvious benefit for MNCs is they'll be able to access an alternative player besides UK's incumbent BT for their multi-site connectivity needs.
