According to a press release, FiberNet met Internap's requirements for a fully-redundant data service that would support its business-critical applications with highly scalable metro Ethernet services. FiberNet says its Metro Ethernet transport service provides rapid and reliable access to bandwidth, contributing toward Internap's goal of bringing reliability, performance, and security to its Internet-based applications.
