CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, today announces a new wholesale buy and sell agreement with PEG Bandwidth, LLC, a provider of high-capacity, scalable Ethernet backhaul networks. Leveraging bilateral interconnects to Global Capacity's One Marketplace in New York City, Ashburn, Pittsburgh, Chicago and Dallas Points of Presence (PoPs), PEG Bandwidth now has the ability to procure off-net services, giving it greater network reach. From PEG Bandwidth, Global Capacity gains additional Ethernet over Fiber network access over 15,000 route miles throughout lower-tier and rural markets in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and South Central regions, further differentiating the company's ability to provide automated connectivity solutions via its One Marketplace.

Global Capacity's One Marketplace provides network buyers and sellers with market-competitive network solutions, enabling both groups to expand the breadth and reach of their service capabilities while meeting the exploding bandwidth requirements of wholesale and enterprise customers. One Marketplace enables customers to take advantage of near-ubiquitous network access by combining an interconnected, physical network aggregation platform with a Cloud application that automates the design, pricing, delivery and maintenance of network solutions.
