Telefonica Global Solutions together with Allied Fiber have signed a 20-year agreement for dark fiber in the United States, as well as neutral colocation and interconnection services which will strengthen Telefonica’s International infrastructures in America.

The following agreement provides Telefonica with dedicated access and use of its own physical network infrastructure within the Allied Fiber system enabling greater control of service provisioning, network scalability and costs.
