Uunet has unveiled plans to more than double its existing bandwidth to the US by deploying at least 45Mbps of extra transatlantic capacity by the end of 1996. This will raise Uunet's transatlantic capacity to more than 90Mbps.
But even before the extra bandwidth comes into service, Uunet's global backbone already supports 90Mbps of aggregate transoceanic capacity, including the existing 45Mbps link between the US and Europe.
Its network provides direct connections to more than 140 Internet service providers in over 50 countries.
The extra bandwidth will be provided by US telecommunications provider MFS, which in August of this year merged with Uunet in a $2 billion deal.
MFS is building the European infrastructure for Uunet's network of superhubs.
Points of presence for connection to the superhubs will be located in Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Stockholm and Zurich.
