HAMILTON, Bermuda -- Teleglobe International Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: TLGB - News), a leader in international telecom services for Internet service providers (ISPs) and fixed and mobile network operators, today announced the opening of a new IP point of presence (PoP) in Warsaw, Poland. The new IP PoP enables ISPs and carriers in the region to quickly and easily connect their voice networks via VoIP and IP networks to Teleglobe's global network for high quality voice and data services.

The new point of presence gives local Internet service providers and carriers access to Teleglobe's robust, reliable global network at competitive pricing. This access is of critical importance as Polish companies reach out to the North American market and rest of Europe. Neighboring countries, such as Belarus, Lithuania, and Ukraine, also benefit from having a Teleglobe IP PoP close by. Teleglobe has already connected its IP network to many Polish companies including ATM, a provider of telecommunications services throughout Poland and Multimedia, a leading Polish CATV operator, broadband Internet and phone service provider in the Warsaw IP PoP.

"Opening a Teleglobe IP PoP in the region is good news for Eastern European businesses, because the company is a leading IP provider and its global network connects us to key markets," said Janusz Nowakowski, Carrier Relationships Manager of ATM. "They offer a great deal of flexibility as a partner and we can take advantage of both voice and data services."

"Teleglobe's new IP PoP will provide high quality voice exchange, Internet access and value added services to ISPs and carriers in Poland and surrounding countries including the Ukraine which is a fast-developing telecom industry, " said Marcin Raczkiewicz, Teleglobe's Regional Director for Central and Eastern Europe. "This is an important move for Teleglobe given the growth in the telecoms sector in Poland as a result of the European Union. Poland is neighbor to a number of the countries admitted to the EU last year, which makes Warsaw a strategic site for an IP PoP."

"Teleglobe's IP PoP offers our customers secure access, faster connections, direct regional connectivity to each other, and worldwide connectivity," said Wojciech Kamieniecki, Vice President, Manading Director of Multimedia Polska. "It also offers a number of voice, data and other value-added services, including IP transit and IPLs, making it a comprehensive solution for all of our customers' connectivity needs. Teleglobe's global expertise gives us the worldwide network we need to compete in a global market."
