NTT Communications furthers its IP network reach in Eastern Europe

NTT Communications (NYSE: NTT) will now be able to offer multinational corporations (MNCs) and service providers even more connectivity options as it expands the reach of its global IP network with new point of presence (PoP) in three Eastern European cities: Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia.

The service provider believes the new PoPs can serve two key missions: fostering growth in the regional markets but also enabling other global service providers and MNCs to get access to Eastern Europe.

However, the new PoPs weren't developed in a build it and they will come fashion. NTT Europe, its local European subsidiary, has been in constant discussion with Eastern European companies for a number of years to see how it could assist them with their growing bandwidth needs.

Network expansion is a constant theme at NTT. To date, its Global IP Network Service, which is connected to its Global Tier-1 IP backbone, is available throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and the United States.
