Provides Route-Diverse, High-Speed Enterprise and Wholesale Network Services Throughout Canada

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - XO Communications today announced its expansion in the Canadian market where, through its Canadian subsidiary, it can now offer route-diverse, high-speed network services across all of Canada's six time zones. XO network services are now available throughout Canada, including Dedicated Internet Access, high-speed IP transit, MPLS IP-VPN, VPLS, Ethernet, Private Line and Wavelength services for enterprise and wholesale customers.

"Our Canadian expansion is an example of the progressive organic growth we've experienced since implementing our initial network hub in Toronto and the growing demand from our customers for end-to-end network service capabilities throughout Canada," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer for XO Communications. "Our further expansion across Canada will enable XO Communications to continue to provide high-capacity network services to enterprise and wholesale customers, whether they need connectivity within Canada or high-speed access to markets in the U.S."

The expansion across Canada continues the XO goal of selectively expanding its international network infrastructure to support the growing demands of its enterprise and wholesale customers. Previously, XO Communications announced the launch of services in Toronto, a key business center for the finance, high-tech, media and telecommunications industries. This expansion into Canada is designed to maximize coverage and network performance for customers by utilizing redundant metro fiber rings and multiple, diverse long-haul fiber routes that span the country, terminating in the XO hub in Toronto. The network is designed with redundant connections into the XO U.S. network via New York City, Cleveland and Seattle.
