HAMILTON, Bermuda--(CCNMatthews - Mar 23, 2005) -

New DVB/IP Platform Offers Carriers and ISPs in Africa Cost-Effective,
Flexible and Scaleable Internet Connectivity

Teleglobe International Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:TLGB), a leading provider
of international telecommunications services to Internet service
providers, fixed and mobile network operators, today announced that the
company has launched a new Internet Digital Video Broadcast/Internet
Protocol (DVB/IP) satellite platform covering the African continent to
accommodate Internet traffic growth.

Teleglobe is a world leader in implementing DVB/IP satellite services
since 1999, with a footprint covering over 190 countries. Teleglobe's
new DVB/IP platform provides carriers and ISPs fast, reliable,
cost-effective, scaleable Internet connectivity in Africa. The DVB/IP
technology enables the transport of multiple IP streams through a single
carrier using the MPEG2 encoding.

Teleglobe DVB/IP Service uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver IP
traffic from its global IP backbone network to a low-cost, receive-only
antenna located at the customer's premise, and is supported by a 24-hour
manned network control centre.

"As demand for our Internet access services continues to rapidly
increase, it is important that we can rely on a Tier 1 ISP, like
Teleglobe, to provide global Internet reach to our customers as well as
quick responses as we grow," said Jonathan Somen, Managing Director of
AccessKenya. "Teleglobe's fast, reliable Internet connectivity solidly
satisfies our customers and thus helps us maintain leadership in Kenya's
highly competitive Internet marketplace."

"Due to our customers' growing demand for Teleglobe's Internet service
in Africa, we have expanded our capacity to meet their IP connectivity
needs," said Christian Michaud, Vice President of Marketing at
Teleglobe. "Teleglobe's reliable, high-performance DVB/IP service
enables our customers to scale along with their growing businesses."

Teleglobe's global network supports a wide variety of advanced data and
IP services including global IP transit, international private leased
circuits (IPLs), bandwidth and broadcast services. Teleglobe has
ownership in over 100 subsea and terrestrial cable systems and has 40
antennas serving the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Teleglobe is
a global Tier 1 Internet service provider (ISP) and operates the IP
backbone AS 6453 which circles the globe. Our MPLS-enabled IP network
connects more than 90 countries to the Internet and is also supporting
