MONACO and LONDON, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NYSE: LVLT) and Monaco Telecom have announced the signing of a strategic agreement that will connect the Principality of Monaco to Level 3's global Internet backbone network.

As a result, Monaco Telecom will meet increased enterprise and consumer demand for more reliable and secure connectivity to some of the largest capital cities of Europe, Latin America, Asia and the United States.

The signing of this agreement will enable Level 3 to operate a point of presence (PoP) in Monaco and enable Monaco Telecom's enterprise customers to use the Level 3 global network to link all of their sites both within the Principality and across the world in a secure and scalable manner without connection speed limitations.

Level 3's redundant infrastructures will be connected in the Principality with direct access to the EIG (Europe India Gateway) submarine cable. This cable, which was deployed in Monegasque territorial waters in October 2009, connects Europe to India, via the Middle East, with access to East Africa. As a result, connection capabilities between Monaco and the rest of the world have increased eightfold in a single year (April 2011 - April 2012).
