Level 3 Communications has signed deals with large British MSO ntl to supply network services in the U.K. and Ireland. Under the pacts, Level 3 will support ntl's consumer and business broadband services with (3) CrossRoads, the vendor's wholesale high-speed Internet access and transport service.
Specifically, Level 3 will provide ntl with multiple 2.5 Gbps ports in Manchester and diverse 10 Gbps ports in London. In addition, Level 3 will provide support for ntl's enhancement of Internet services for enterprise and wholesale communications companies across Ireland.
Level 3 formally launched services in Dublin earlier this week. It also boosted its network capacity into Manchester to meet demand from ntl and other broadband providers. Level 3 now offers services in 21 European markets, as well as 77 North American markets.
