Jun 29, 2005, 01:00 ET from NTT Communications

    TOKYO, June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NTT Communications (NTT Com)
 announced today that the company will launch Global Super Link, a virtual
 end-to-end Ethernet data transmission service. The service will be available
 between Japan and the United States on July 1st, 2005, followed by a worldwide
 rollout linking major cities.
     Global Super Link is the world's first full-scale commercial service of
 its kind, providing enterprise users with high-speed, high-bandwidth,
 cost-effective global data transmission that accommodates their usage
 patterns. The service offers the security of a closed-network service over an
 open-network environment, taking advantage of NTT Com's Ethernet over MPLS
 technology based on its Tier 1 backbone and world class network management.
     Enterprise users can choose two transmission speed options of 45 Mbps or
 100 Mbps depending on their bandwidth needs and data traffic patterns. Users
 can transmit up to one terabyte of data per month for a fixed cost, after
 which they are charged per-gigabyte for any additional data transmission.
 Unlimited usage at a fixed monthly cost is available with the 45 Mbps option.
     "Multinational corporations today are furthering their global
 collaboration in product development and design, which requires large volumes
 of data transmission among geographically dispersed locations," says Kimio
 Tamura, Vice President of the Product Management Group at NTT Com's Global
 Services Business Division. "Global Super Link provides corporate users with
 an alternative to leased circuits for high-volume data transfers while
 maintaining quality and pricing flexibility."
