Sonic Telecom, Ltd. Unveils 'By the Byte' Multiple Media Service Between USA and Europe

Sonic Telecom, Ltd. today activated the telecommunication industry's first network to offer international bandwidth on demand. Global customers can use bandwidth between the USA and Western Europe as needed, paying by the byte for the transmission resources actually used on a single monthly bill. Sonic Telecom, a pioneer in the newly emerging category of International Telecommunications Service Providers, delivers end- to-end service, eliminating the need for customers to buy equipment or sign up for long-term contracts. The company's unique approach to voice-data-video services not only cuts customers' direct transmission costs; it reduces the number of lines needed and the cost of managing a global business. In a challenge to the industry, Sonic Telecom President and CEO Todd Ruelle invited users of trans-Atlantic private lines and frame relay services to reexamine the structure of those services. "Demand that your current carrier provide bandwidth on demand and billing based on usage," Ruelle said. "If they don't -- or can't -- provide it, Sonic Telecom will." Privately-held Sonic Telecom provides access, transport and termination for transmission of video, data and voice on a single network at a fraction of the cost -- and with greater flexibility -- than the private lines and frame relay services offered by AT&T, MCI/WorldCom, British Telecom or Sprint. It has points of presence in Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, London, New York, and Paris. The Chantilly, Virginia-based company plans service expansion throughout North America in 4Q'99. Viatel International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VYTL) is an equity holder and strategic partner in the company.
