Global Capacity’s ongoing strategy of network roll-out, whereby it brings high-speed Internet and a comprehensive portfolio of high quality, cost-effective, scalable data connectivity services to more than 9.6 million commercial sites, took another giant leap forward last week. The leading connectivity as a service company expanded its One Marketplace™ network with a metropolitan fiber ring in the Washington, D.C. area. The nation’s Capitol and the surrounding region have long been a major Internet and network exchange point. The 54-mile diversely routed fiber ring will interconnect the company’s Points of Presence (PoP) located within the Level 3 1755 Old Meadow Road, McLean, VA facility and the Equinix Ashburn, VA data center.
