LONDON -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:LVLT) today announced it has signed new agreements to supply network services in the UK and Ireland to ntl (Nasdaq:NTLI), one of the UK’s largest broadband services providers.

Level 3 will support ntl’s consumer and business broadband offerings with (3)CrossRoads®, its wholesale high-speed Internet access and transport service. Specifically, Level 3 will supply ntl with multiple 2.5Gbps ports in Manchester and diverse 10Gbps ports in London. In addition, ntl has purchased (3)CrossRoads service from Level 3 in Dublin to enhance the Internet services it delivers to enterprises and wholesale communications companies across Ireland.

“With over 3 million customers throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, ntl has clearly established itself as a leading provider of broadband services,” said Brady Rafuse, president of Level 3’s European operations. “We believe ntl’s ability to deliver high-quality voice, video and Internet access over a single network connection offers a powerful value proposition to both businesses and consumers, evidenced by IP traffic growth over its network and need to upgrade capacity with Level 3. We are very pleased to be serving as ntl’s network partner in both countries, and look forward to growing our relationship with this important customer.”

“We have now significantly enhanced the resilience of our Internet access services by providing more localised points for the collection of regional IP traffic, said Steve Upton, Managing Director of the Networks Division, ntl. “Level 3 has demonstrated its continued strong commitment to customers by investing in its backbone, and we are delighted to be working with them on this important initiative.”
