November 10, 2005 Boston, MA and Nashville, TN -- Network services provider WV Fiber has selected Hibernia Atlantic's trans-Atlantic transport network to provide two OC-48 level services from New York to London to directly connect with LINX, one of Europe's largest network exchange points.
WV Fiber says it selected Hibernia for its ability to offer route diversity on a secure network. Hibernia Atlantic owns and operates a direct trans-Atlantic cable route from the U.S. and Canada to Ireland and the UK. Hibernia's U.S.-built transport does not traverse traditional, congested oceanic routes, including the UK's Cornwall area or the NY and NJ waterways.
"Since turning up the circuit to London a few weeks ago, WV Fiber has already added over 125 peers and are sending over two GigEs of traffic via Hibernia Atlantic's secure network," comments Peter Marcum, CEO of WV Fiber. "With this connection, WV Fiber is now offering its existing transport, VPN, content delivery, and streaming media to hundreds of LINX's European ISPs and content delivery networks. We chose Hibernia Atlantic as our cable network because the company has an extensive suite of network services, large bandwidth capacity, and at 63 millisecond latency, is an optimal solution for our customer needs."
"WV Fiber is a great addition to Hibernia's growing customer list," remarks Bjarni Thorvardarson, CEO of Hibernia Atlantic. "We look forward to providing WV Fiber with security through diversity."
