DECEMBER 21, 2010 -- AboveNet Inc. (NYSE: ABVT) has announced plans to expand its fiber-optic network in Seattle. New fiber-optic rings will provide short, low-latency network routes from downtown Seattle to the Sabey Data Center Complex in Tukwila and include connections into the new American Life data center, AboveNet says.

"We expect our new low-latency routes to be very popular with Seattle's enterprises and carriers that must have secure, high-bandwidth connectivity for business-critical data communications," said Xenophon Giannis, executive director of Pacific region sales at AboveNet. "Our high-performance network provides customers with increased network diversity and is a faster alternative to the existing 80-mile fiber ring around Lake Washington."

AboveNet's fiber-optic network in Seattle currently spans 250 route miles stretching from Mukilteo to the north to Tacoma in the south, with routes throughout downtown Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, and around Lake Washington.
