NEW YORK, NY -- Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc. (MFN), the leader in deployment of optical Internet infrastructure within key metropolitan areas internationally, will lease fiber-optic infrastructure to SBC Communications, Inc. across the United States.

Valued at more than $432 million, this 20-year agreement will enable SBC to expand its out-of-region local market presence in 30 major markets. SBC plans to obtain dark fiber from MFN for the majority of the markets in its national expansion, giving the company high-bandwidth, "last-mile" connectivity. Those markets include MFN's previously announced U.S. networks, such as Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
