XO Communications Launches Service in Toronto

Extends XO Network Into Canada's Largest Telecommunications Hub to Offer High-Speed Network Services

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - XO Communications today announced its expansion into the Toronto market where it can now offer high-speed network services to enterprise and wholesale customers through a Canadian subsidiary.

"As the largest network hub in Canada and a major hub in North America, Toronto is a key business center for the finance, high-tech, media and telecommunications industries," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer for XO Communications. "Our expansion into Canada will enable XO to provide high-capacity network services to better serve businesses like these on both sides of the border, whether they need connectivity in Toronto or high-speed access to markets in the U.S."

XO Communications has expanded its fiber network into the largest telecommunications facility in Canada located at 151 Front Street West in Toronto. As part of its expansion, the company is now connected to over a dozen major data center colocation facilities through its partner Cologix, which connects to more than 150 telecommunications companies. The company can now offer wholesale and enterprise network services, including high-speed Internet access, MPLS IP-VPN, private line, Ethernet and wavelength services, at speeds up to 10 Gbps in Toronto through its Canadian subsidiary. These services run over a fully diverse 550-mile Toronto metro and Canadian long-haul fiber network connecting back to the U.S. at multiple locations.

The network expansion into Toronto continues XO Communications' goal of selectively expanding its network infrastructure on an international basis to support the growing demands of its enterprise and wholesale customers. These international service capabilities include network service delivery to more than 50 countries; five international nodes in Toronto, London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, and Madrid; global MPLS IP-VPN partner connectivity; and presence at major subsea cable landing stations and international gateways in the U.S.

This network expansion builds upon XO Communications' network infrastructure which now includes more than 1.6 million fiber miles, more than 29,000 network miles and 4,000 on-net buildings. XO Communications also operates one of the largest IP networks in the U.S. and globally. For more information about the company's international capabilities, visit the XO international Services overview on www.xo.com.
