TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) recently expanded its six-year partnership with Caucasus Online, signing a Global IP Transit service agreement that enhances connectivity and quality of Service (QoS) amongst Caucasus’ Internet and telephony customers. The 2006 acquisitions of competitors Georgia Online and Sanet enabled Caucasus Online to offer a full range of ISP and connectivity services in addition to its fixed data and long distance telephony solutions. Following its merger with Georgia’s main Internet provider, Telenet, in 2008, the organization took on the role of one of the largest Internet service providers in Georgia, and continues to maintain a firm grasp on the Georgian Internet communications market today.
“Our commitment to provide our clients with the reach, scale and reliability they deserve is unwavering,” said Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier. “With this new IP transit service agreement with Caucasus Online, we will power its users with a world-class IP Transit service.”
“As a capacity and Internet provider, TeliaSonera International Carrier plays an important role in the whole Caucasus region,” adds Levan Khundadze, General Director, Caucasus Online. We consider them a hugely significant partner, with high potential for growth.”
And for good reason. With access to TSIC’s award-winning IP backbone and service quality, Caucasus Online’s Internet services have gotten even stronger and more reliable. Caucasus can now leverage TSIC’s fiber backbone (the largest IP backbone in the world), to provide its customers with high quality IP transit connectivity and scalable, global reach at the speed of fiber. This means even faster access to high-demand, high-bandwidth and highly collaborative applications, including online gaming, streaming video, content, and social media platforms.
