Level 3 to Deliver U.S. Internet Traffic for GemNet

U.S. High-Speed IP Connectivity to Improve Global Network Reach

BROOMFIELD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: LVLT) today announced an agreement with GemNet LLC, a Mongolian telecommunications and Internet wholesale provider. Level 3 will deliver high-speed Internet Protocol (IP) services in the United States to support GemNet’s broad customer base of Mongolian Internet service providers (ISPs).

“As broadband penetration continues to grow across Mongolia and neighboring countries, demand for high-quality global communications is increasing dramatically,” said Ts Bat-Erdene, chief executive officer of GemNet. “Level 3 offers extensive network connectivity for carriers located across Asia, Europe and the United States to meet the growing demand for Internet services in Mongolia.”

Under the terms of the five-year agreement, Level 3 will deliver high-speed IP services in the U.S. for GemNet to connect their growing customer base directly to global Internet destinations. The Level 3 network provides a key component of the trans-continental network infrastructure for GemNet.

The GemNet network delivers a high-capacity, low-latency transit route – via Mongolia – between Asia and Europe and between Asia and the United States. These capabilities build on GemNet’s regional network partnerships with the People’s Republic of China and Russian Federation to position GemNet as a valuable provider to international carriers and more than 30 ISPs across Mongolia.

“Emerging international markets represent a significant opportunity for traffic growth over the Level 3 network,” said Andrew Crouch, president of Wholesale Markets for Level 3. “As GemNet extends its network reach to a greater number of end-user customers in Mongolia and around the region, Level 3 is well positioned to provide an international network platform to support their ongoing growth and innovation.”

Renesys Corporation measures Level 3 as the world’s largest IP transit network. Connectivity via the Level 3 network offers global carriers the network reach, performance and scale to meet the growing demands of residential and business communications.
