Atlanta has been a core location for many years. Bringing all of our employees together in our state-of-the-art facility, aligns with Level 3's business objectives and enables us to strengthen our relationship with our local, regional and global customers.  For our employees, Peachtree Corners and the greater Atlanta area offers a strong quality of life and a wonderful cultural environment.  The purchase and build out of the new facility is a significant strategic investment and we are looking forward to deepening our roots here in Georgia.

We are confident that with the strong foundation of Georgia's number one ranked economic climate, they will continue to be a formidable competitor in the global telecommunications industry.
