Allstream and BT Announce Strategic Relationship

Canada-based Allstream and BT announced a partnership to deliver global IP solutions to Canadian and multinational companies with cross-border and international requirements. Allstream will be able to both extend its global reach and gain access to BT's advanced product and network services portfolio on a worldwide basis. BT will continue to use Allstream to connect its global customers who have requirements in Canada.

The first outcome of this collaboration is the launch of Allstream's Global Business IP service, which extends the reach of Allstream's national MPLS network by leveraging BT's extensive global network to offer seamless international service and support to enterprise customers. The service will allow customers to interconnect locations worldwide simply and efficiently. http://www.allstream.com
