March 6, 2009 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Uber Bandwidth
, a leading provider of high-performance high-value bandwidth to the data center colocation community, announced today that it has surpassed its first connectivity milestone of offering over a dozen Tier 1 connections to its customers. Utilizing their 1-Terabit-capable network, Uber Bandwidth has achieved this goal while remaining the value leader in the industry.
"Thirteen and growing monthly," counts Jonathan Hoppe, Uber Bandwidth's Chief Technology Officer. "That's how many Tier-1 Internet providers our colocation customers can now access at the Uber Center in Asheville, North Carolina. You can watch the number of Tier-1 providers increase and see who they are right on our website. We have open negotiations with a dozen other providers, and once we reach acceptable agreements we'll be adding them in to the mix as well. Our plans for the future are big. We're running diverse path fiber to other carrier hotels around the United States, and by the end of 2009 we hope to directly peer with over 100 networks. We are well on our way to creating the most extreme network of multiple 10-gigabit connections to every major network in the U.S., Canada and Europe."
"Prospective clients have given rave reviews to the website's new user-friendly features, explains Chief Operating Officer, John Thompson. It adds online pricing not only for bandwidth but also for the Uber Center colocation space and power, from 1 rack unit up to a full cabinet and more. And to evaluate the robustness of our network, there's now a third-party speed test to use by just clicking a button on our website."
