Level 3 takes European network into Slovenia and Croatia

Level 3 Communications (Nasdaq: LVLT) is capitalizing on growing demand for its services in Europe by establishing points of presence (PoP) in both Ljubljana, Slovenia and Zagreb, Croatia.

Of course, Level 3's presence will also benefit area carrier partners such as Telekom Slovenije, which will gain access to Level 3's international IP backbone.  

By establishing a presence in Slovenia and Croatia, Level 3's network now reaches into over 20 European countries.

The timing of the Eastern European expansion comes as Level 3 is moving to bolster its service and network capabilities through its acquisition of Global Crossing.
