JANUARY 14, 2011 -- NTT Communications Corp has expanded the data-transmission capacity of its global IP network between the United States and Japan to 400 Gbps. NTT Com's global IP backbones are connected to fixed and mobile telecom companies, Internet service providers (ISPs), data center operators, and content providers.

NTT Com says it has expanded bandwidth sevenfold over the past five years ago, responding to new demand created by the spread of broadband networks and the growing popularity of online video, music, social networking and micro-blogging. The current jump from 300 Gbps to 400 Gbps was achieved in less than a year.

NTT Com launched the precursor of its current Global IP Network Service with a 45-Mbps service in 1997.
