LONDON -- In a move which brings the scale and reach of the world's sixth largest telco direct to UK businesses, Telefónica UK today announced the launch of a range of international services. These complement Telefónica UK's existing range of services targeted at UK based enterprises, adding the ability to connect overseas locations with the UK. The two products, which have been added to the portfolio, are international Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and clear channel services. Both products will bring added scope for UK businesses to reduce networking costs on key routes.

Key to the services is Telefónica UK's access to the coverage of the Telefónica Global Network. With this launch, UK businesses can now order and deal directly with Telefónica in the UK. With access to 1500 points of presence worldwide, covering 75 countries, Telefónica UK can now offer significant reach in western Europe, in particular, to Spain, Germany and Portugal. Additionally, the Group's unbeatable coverage in Latin America is an added bonus. Among the businesses expected to benefit from this are those in the retail-goods and business services sectors wishing to expand their businesses and networks globally or just connect to a few choice locations across the Channel.

Andrew Peters, CEO, Telefónica UK, said: "The launch of these international services reinforces Telefónica UK's commitment to UK businesses, from mid-sized, multi-site, distributed organisations wanting to link in a couple of branch offices abroad, to large corporates needing to securely link up key sites worldwide." He continued: "This further illustrates our determination to bring secure and competitively priced networking to our UK clients in the most cost-effective manner possible."
