NTT Com Expands its Ethernet "Global Super Link" Service

NTT Communications is expanding its Global Super Link Ethernet service to England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Hong Kong in addition to the U.S. and Japan. The expanded reach will be available in July.

NTT Com is also introducing a more flexible fee structure. Currently, users can choose between two transmission speeds of 45Mbps, for a flat rate, or 100Mbps with a fee depending on data traffic. Under the new flexible fee, users can choose transmission speeds in increments of 10Mbps from 10Mbps to 100Mbps for a flat rate, although 100Mbps subscribers can also opt for a variable rate.

The Global Super Link Ethernet service runs over NTT Com's Global IP/MPLS backbone. Enterprise users can create a global LAN environment using their existing equipment, which saves the cost of having to purchase special devices.
