telx's Miami Facility Adds FiberLight Network Infrastructure

Growth Expected With Appointment of Dedicated Sales Executive

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - telx, the premier operator of Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection collocation Facilities in the United States, announces the addition of FiberLight, the premier provider of dark fiber network infrastructure, to their Miami Meet Me Room located at 36 North East 2nd Street in Miami, Florida.

FiberLight designs, constructs and manages metro dark fiber rings in six tier one cities and has affiliate agreements to provide fiber in 30 tier 203 metropolitan markets. With the addition of FiberLight, telx customers in Miami can now interconnect to one of the region's most recognized industry experts in the management and delivery of dark fiber solutions providing a full array of services to wholesale carriers, large enterprise customers, federal, state and local governments requiring metro fiber connectivity in the Miami metropolitan region.

"We have built out our metro dark fiber ring into the telx Meet Me Room in Miami because we know this will allow our company to provide key services to the companies in the Miami metro markets who choose to collocate their Core Interconnection equipment with telx," commented Kevin Coyne, COO of FiberLight. "We have grown tremendously with telx in their Atlanta carrier hotel and believe in their model in providing companies with ease of connectivity to major network operators is the driver to our own success."

telx continues to grow and add not only customers but resources to the Miami market. Recently the company expanded their team with the addition of Kelly Joyce, an industry veteran with deep relationships with major Latin and South American companies who require connectivity to major US network and Global network operator networks in the Miami market.

"FiberLight has been a terrific partner, particularly in the South Eastern portion of the United States where their dark fiber metro network is quite extensive," said Hunter Newby, Chief Strategy Officer of telx. "Our model has had proven success in New York and Atlanta and will no doubt create efficiencies in the Miami market solving interconnectivity problems for network operators who need access between the Americas."

telx is positioning Miami as a strong market for growth due to the growing requirements of carriers and global enterprise network operators to gain access to the major communication networks leading to and from Latin and South America. According to Internet World Stats, who tracks Internet population statistics, Internet users and population stats show North American penetration at 69% and South and Central American penetration, including the Caribbean at an average of 18%. In addition, with North America's Internet users reaching 233 million with an estimated population over 334 million and South and Central America and the Caribbean reaching 110 million Internet users combined compared to a combined population of over 556 million, there appears to be a significant amount of growth of communications yet to be realized between the Americas.
