WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Cogent Communications, a Tier One, next generation, optical Internet service provider, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with American Fiber Systems, Inc. (AFS), a leading provider of dark-fiber metropolitan networks in second- and third-tier cities throughout the United States, to secure dark fiber strands on AFS's Kansas City network. Cogent's nationwide, end-to-end optical network provides radically priced Internet service in 20 of the largest cities in the United States. Cogent will further its presence in Kansas City by "lighting" its metropolitan rings in the Kansas City area, meeting the demand generated by its 100 Mbps at $1,000 per month service. "Cogent's business success is largely the result of impressive technology which enables Cogent to provide bandwidth at costs never before seen in the Internet service provider market," said Dave Danchak, AFS vice president of sales and business development. "We are pleased to provide a cost-effective infrastructure that enables Cogent to continue to offer radical pricing while remaining a true, facilities-based provider. And we are particularly pleased to be chosen as one of its partners to enable Cogent to achieve its mission of delivering Internet access at unsurpassed speeds, reliability and value for its end users."Cogent Communications Inc.American Fiber Systems Inc.
