ITG to boost wins DTI licences

Expands telecoms networks

Internet Technology Group -- whose subsidiary Global Internet was recently named best Internet Service Provider by Internet Magazine -- is to expand its telecoms networks after being awarded two licences by the Department of Trade and Industry. As well as developing its UK network, the company has already secured similar licences in the US with regulatory approval by the Federal Communications Commission. Accoding to Laurence Blackall, CEO of ITG, winning these licences is critical for the company as it continues its transformation into a facilities-based ISP. "With our national infrastructure and substantial international backbone already in place, we now have the most extensive IP network of any independent UK service provider," he said. In October last year, ITG announced that its subsidiary, GX Networks, had teamed up with Fibernet Group to develop its national networking capability and expand its corporate business. The three year agreement will give GX Networks access to a national network with three Super Points of Presence and access to a further 30 POPs through Fibernet's existing network. ®
