5 thoughts on “More metro for Level 3”

  1. As a customer who JUST migrated our entire data center to a Level-3-acquired company in Seattle last week, I can say that so far, service and communication could not be any worse. It’s off-the-charts bad so far. Wish we would have never moved. I’ve heard that the actual Level3 data centers operated by Level3 people are great, but unbeknownst to me, we were placed in one of the newly acquired locations instead. One week after we experienced almost an entire day of downtime, still no answers.

  2. Mike,

    well you can clearly see that at the end of the day, they are a wholesale bandwidth company and the mind set is going to be wholesale.

    the data center business is part of what they have been doing for a long time, so i am a little surprised.

    will keep you in the loop

  3. Ever since they acquired Looking Glass Networks, Level(3) has been an important vendor of ours..

    They’ve certainly had a bunch of integration problems and issues, but they do have a very nice IP network, with a lot of capacity and a lot of eyeballs…

    These latest moves are certainly in line with their spree of metro acquisitions.
    Their financials speak for themselves, but if they can pull it off, and rally up LVLT they are in a very interesting position for sure….

    I wasn’t aware that Yipes actually had significant fiber assets. Didn’t they lease a lot of their fiber from Level(3)?

  4. Well, that is true. I agree, Level 3 is trying their best to become an enterprise/metro services player. May take a few months, but they are damn serious about it.
