Telia Carrier establishes Internet presence in Montreal

Telia Carrier has established a new presence in Montreal, now providing wholesale IP transit, Ethernet and IPX services for carriers, content and cloud providers, the company said.

As one of the leading providers of 100G services, Telia Carrier enables Montreal customers to connect to its AS1299 fiber optic backbone, one of the largest in the world, at the highest speeds available in the region.

Montreal is a major media hub for the French Canadian market and the region´s low power costs are also a draw for content providers and cloud technology companies. Montreal is uniquely positioned as a key aggregation point for international traffic, from both the US as well as transatlantic directly to Canada from Europe via east coast Canadian cable landing points.

Telia Carrier owns and operates an extensive fiber backbone.
