Level 3 ramps up Latin American drive with new referral program

Seeing an increased demand from Latin American service providers to expand into North America and Europe for international bandwidth and multi-site reach, Level 3 Communications (Nasdaq: LVLT) introduced a new referral program in a number of Latin American markets.

Following a similar referral program Level 3 launched in Asia this September--one it says has produced a number of large deals already--the Latin American referral program will target a number of "select" markets, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Panama.

By working with the program's set of referral service providers, Latin American-based service providers will be able to extend the reach of their in-region networks with Level 3's Internet and data services in both North America and Europe.  

Acting as network service consultants, participating referral providers will not only market access to Level 3's U.S. and European network, but assess and recommend the best Level 3 service (high-speed IP, transport and Ethernet) for their particular needs. From there, the carrier will contract directly with Level 3 to get the service they need.
