FRANKFURT, Germany -- Cogent Communications Group, Inc. (Amex: COI - News), a multinational Tier One, optical Internet service provider, announced today that it is providing service at Interxion colocation facilities, a leading pan-European provider of collocation and managed services. The arrangement provides that Cogent's ultra fast, highly reliable Internet Protocol (IP) and Internet access services are immediately available in 6 Interxion Data Centers located in Germany, France, Belgium, Austria and Spain.

Cogent currently has a presence in over 85 markets throughout Europe and the United States, and the ISP operates over 25 of its own On-Net data centers. Colocation in Interxion's facilities affords Cogent entree into several strategic facilities where important carrier class prospects are located.

With the Interxion deal, carrier and enterprise customers gain even more avenues to conveniently access Cogent's multiple OC-192 (STM-64) network backbone and choose from a variety of products including Layer 3, ring protected transit service and Layers 1 and 2 transport services with available interfaces ranging from a T1 to multiple wavelengths. Cogent's data center customers, whether they meet Cogent's Tier One network at an On-Net facility or at a carrier-neutral data center, are typically connected in 17 days or less.

"Since founding Cogent in 1999, we've worked diligently to assure our longevity, price competitiveness and unmatched quality in the global Internet market," noted Cogent CEO Dave Schaeffer. "The Interxion relationship is another example of how we continually strive to meet demand for reliable and cost-effective IP services -- in this instance by making our services available in state-of-the-art, secure colocation centers."

"With the presence of Cogent in our data centers, our customers will get state-of-the-art telecom and IP services as well as access to one of the largest networks in the world," said Anthony Foy, Interxion Group Managing Director.
