Tinet Further Expands Its Operations in the US

MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) - Tinet, formerly the carrier arm of Tiscali Group, and the only global carrier exclusively committed to the IP and Ethernet wholesale market, today announces further expansion of its operations in North America.

In the last Quarter, the company added 25 long haul backbone circuits across the US and opened three additional network Points of Presence (PoPs) in Newark, New Jersey, Dallas, Texas and Denver, Colorado.

Tinet also announced the start of the implementation, in New Jersey, of its third Network Operations Center (NOC) to be completed by Q1 2010. This development is another important milestone as Tinet further extends its customer and technical support closer to its clients in the Americas.

In May 2009, BS Private Equity SpA, one of Italy's leading private equity firms, completed the acquisition of Tinet, formerly known as Tiscali International Network, providing further backing to Tinet global expansion.

"We've had an exciting year thus far and look forward to further network expansion next year; expanding into new regions which are showing fast-growing connectivity demands," states Maurizio Binello, Chief Operating Officer of Tinet. "Through this expansion we can give customers in new markets more choice, as well as extending our geographic reach to better fulfill existing customer requirements."

Tinet's IP and Ethernet backbone extends across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific and boasts over 100 PoPs. According to third party reports, Tinet's AS3257 is one of the top 10 global IPv4 backbones and is the largest IPv6 network worldwide. For more information about Tinet, please visit www.tinet.net.
