HONG KONG, July 18, 2007 - PCCW Global Limited, a subsidiary of Hong Kong's premier telecommunications provider, PCCW Limited, has expanded provision of IP services to more than 740 cities in over 70 countries by rolling out more Points of Presence (PoPs).
During the first half of 2007, new PoPs were established in Sydney, Seoul, Singapore, Kuwait City and McAllen, Texas, USA, to support multi-protocol label switching for virtual private networks (MPLS VPN).
An additional PoP will be up and running later this month in Kuala Lumpur.

Our know-how and experience enable PCCW Global to provide integrated global communications solutions to satisfy global requirements for quality, value and reliability."

These extensions provide simple and cost-effective global solutions that enable multinational corporations to consolidate wide-ranging applications on one IP network. PCCW Global maintains a high level of service quality, especially in helping customers to build global networks that address markets in the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, Europe and mainland China, as well as Hong Kong and other parts of Asia.
