Telia Carrier announced that it is expanding into Mexico, providing wholesale IP Transit, Ethernet, IPX and Cloud Connect for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), content and cloud providers in the region.

The company is rolling-out its first Point of Presence (PoP) in the city of Queretaro, north of Mexico City, adding to its current 230 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.

A leading provider of 100G IP and transport services, Telia Carrier will enable ISPs and content providers in Mexico to connect to its global IP backbone, AS1299, one of the largest in the world, at the highest speeds available in the region.

While already serving many ISPs in the LATAM market using backhaul from strategic locations in the US, Telia Carrier will now have a physical presence that means it can fully address the currently underserved tier 2 and 3 operators and ISPs in the region.

Telia Carrier’s expansion in the region will also provide crucial backbone services for major U.S. based service, content and cloud providers that require low latency and high-speed connectivity in Mexico. It also creates an opportunity to address the local, in-market connectivity needs of regional content providers.

Luis Velasquez, Mexico Business Manager, Telia Carrier
We see a huge demand in Mexico for IP Transit, DDoS protection and Cloud Connect services, and we already have many customers there, including mobile operators, local access providers and ISPs amongst others.

Ivo Pascucci, VP and Head of Sales, Telia Carrier
With a physical presence in the region, we’ll be able to attract Mexican operators and content providers currently unable to purchase services within the U.S. jurisdiction by giving them direct access to our global network.
