Sonic Telecom, Ltd. Expands its Digital Communications Network in the USA and Mexico

Sonic Telecom, Ltd., the originator of telecommunications bandwidth-on-demand and billing by-the- byte, announced today the expansion of its digital Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network in North America. Through an interconnection agreement with BroadWing, Inc. (NYSE: BRW), (formerly Cincinnati Bell and IXC Communications, Inc.) Sonic Telecom has added eighty-one cities in the USA and Mexico to its European network. The agreement allows Sonic Telecom to terminate traffic originating in Europe in any of the cities throughout the US and Mexico served by BroadWing, and terminate traffic in Europe, that originates anywhere in the USA. BroadWing can now offer its customers bandwidth on demand and billing by the byte on one digital network that is managed end-to-end. "This is a great day for broadband customers. Finally, they can rely on one network that adapts to their applications and pay only for the transmission resources actually used -- without having to purchase equipment or sign restrictive contracts. The disruption in the market that innovations like these produce benefits all broadband customers -- but they benefit our customers first," said Mike Vent, Chief Network Officer for BroadWing, Inc. "Our agreement creates a major competitor in the market for data with a combination of services that eclipses the offerings of AT&T and MCI Worldcom," added Todd Ruelle, President and CEO of Sonic Telecom, Ltd.
