Level 3 enhances Latin American connectivity

21 November 2013 |


Level 3 Communications has expanded and upgraded its Latin American network, in response to increased demand for IP solutions in the region.

Level 3 – which won a record-breaking three categories at Capacity’s Global Carrier Awards in Amsterdam this week, including Best Latin American wholesale carrier – has invested in network developments across Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela.

Industry experts have labelled Latin America as one of the world’s fastest-growing regions, with internet traffic doubling every two years.

Hector Alonso, regional president for Latin America at the company, said Level 3 was committed to meeting the demands of the region.

“Not only does Level 3 have the network infrastructure to support these increasing market demands, but it also offers a comprehensive portfolio of business communications services that can help enhance the efficiency of our customers,” Alonso said.

Level 3 has expanded its Metro Ethernet Network in Buenos Aires, Argentina, while in Brazil, the company has deployed a metro network route in Porte Alegre, as well as enhancing the capacity of its network in Rio de Janeiro.

Colombia’s network coverage has been expanded and in Venezuela a number of fibre solutions have been deployed in the urban areas of Chuao and La Salle.

Earlier this month, Level 3 expanded its content delivery network (CDN) in a number of locations across the globe, including in Latin America.
