24 07 2007

Much has been made of how Joost was going to be able to utilise enough capacity for its bandwidth-hungry service, and now we know: Level 3 is to provide the IP backbone in North America and Europe.

“Level 3’s unparalleled global infrastructure and extensive local connectivity make them a logical network partner for Joost,” said Fredrik de Wahl, chief strategy officer of Joost. “We have developed the next generation of television for viewers, content owners and advertisers on a global scale and we are confident that the Level 3 network, with its ability to scale and the quality it delivers, can support our growth well into the future.”
