BOSTON and WASHINGTON -- Hibernia Atlantic, the fastest trans-Atlantic transport provider, announces today that Cogent Communications Group, Inc. (Amex: COI - News), the largest Ethernet service provider in the US and a multinational Tier 1 ISP, has selected Hibernia's network to provide 10Gbps wavelength service from Boston to London to meet growing customer demand for trans-Atlantic capacity.

Hibernia Atlantic owns and operates the only direct trans-Atlantic cable route from the US and Canada to Ireland and the UK. This uniquely secure cable empowers customers to move their traffic between Europe and North America without touching London, New York or other potential points of failure.

Hibernia's US-built transport does not traverse traditional, congested oceanic routes, like the UK's Cornwall District or the NY and NJ waterways. Instead, Hibernia has deployed the latest, fastest cable connections with the ability to deliver next generation services.

"We are pleased to welcome Cogent to Hibernia's ever growing customer base," states Eric Gutshall, the VP of Sales & Marketing for Hibernia Atlantic, "including our traditional base of customers; Wholesale Carriers, Ethernet Service providers, Broadcast clients and Enterprise customers. We offer Cogent a unique sense of security and route diversity for its customers."

"We are pleased to integrate Hibernia Atlantic as our third independent provider of trans-Atlantic connectivity," states Lee Livingston, VP of Provisioning & Carrier Services for Cogent Communications. "Cogent's utmost goal is to provide our customers with the most reliable, high performance transit and transport services available at the most competitive pricing in the market. Hibernia Atlantic helps contribute toward that goal along with providing true diversity for Cogent."
