August 4, 2005 The Hague, Netherlands -- KPN has launched an international Ethernet service which, according to the operator, provides its customers with switched Ethernet services with speeds up to 1-Gbit/sec between worldwide locations. In launching the service, the operator says it has seamlessly extended its Dutch Ethernet service across its international EuroRings backbone network.

"We are delighted that we can now offer our customers truly international Ethernet services with one service level, one delivery platform, one single point of contact, and one invoice," comments John van Vianen, senior vice president of connectivity services at KPN. "In order to meet the demand for new services, we are continuing to innovate - in this case, by deploying native Ethernet over our next-generation MPLS backbone network. I believe that this new Ethernet service is an important signal of our ongoing commitment to our international customers."

The operator says its international Ethernet service complements its extensive EuroRings portfolio of international data services, ranging from bandwidth services to managed network services.
