Growing Demand for Access to Competitive Suppliers Drives Ongoing Platform Expansion

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, today announces the opening of a new One Marketplace Point of Presence (PoP) in Minneapolis, MN at 511 11th Avenue South, Minnesota's most connected building. Global Capacity's Minneapolis PoP directly connects into the company's 30 Gbps core, interconnected diverse national network ring, providing an additional access point to One Marketplace and fortifying connectivity to the platform throughout the Midwest.

This key aggregation point enables the delivery of diverse route options, competitive pricing and network services to One Marketplace customers. The PoP is accessible to businesses in the Minneapolis area, as well as those located in underserved markets extending throughout rural Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.

As the primary business center between Chicago and Seattle and a major Midwest hub, Minneapolis boasts high concentrations of Fortune 1000 and S&P 500 companies as well as Forbes 400 private companies. The One Marketplace Minneapolis PoP offers both businesses and service providers efficient, cost-competitive connectivity to a robust carrier ecosystem of more than 360 Internet service providers, emerging cloud, financial, education and government platforms, and 80+ national, regional and local carrier networks, Internet backbones and exchanges.

"Minneapolis is one in a series of strategic new One Marketplace PoPs launched by Global Capacity to improve access for customers and suppliers across the US," says Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. "Interconnecting to One Marketplace at the Minneapolis PoP presents new opportunities for providers in this Tier III market to extend network reach and gain access to competitive pricing without the complexity of designing, contracting and managing multiple interconnections."
