Level 3 carves interconnection deal with AT&T

Level 3 has announced the signing of a bilateral interconnection agreement with AT&T. The two service providers say the deal will improve the efficiency of traffic exchanged between their respective networks, allowing them to deliver a better quality experience for their subscribers.

Roman Pacewicz, senior VP of marketing and global strategy for AT&T Business Solutions, said in a release that adding network capacity from Level 3 will enable it to provide necessary speeds to support the access of bandwidth-hungry traffic from Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and other over-the-top sources.
