WASHINGTON, DC and NEW YORK, May 1, 2015 – Both companies issued the following statement:

Cogent (NASDAQ: CCOI) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) have entered into a long-term, bilateral commercial interconnection agreement related to their public IP networks. The interconnection agreement ensures customers on the two networks can continue to exchange data in an effective and efficient manner.

As the Internet continues to grow and evolve, Internet service providers are negotiating business agreements that allow exchange of Internet traffic in a scalable, resilient and reliable manner. Focusing on the customer, this agreement allows consumers of both Cogent and Verizon to enjoy high-performance speeds to enable new, high-bandwidth applications.

The agreement contains provisions to add capacity and establish new interconnection locations between the two networks to stay ahead of growing traffic demands.
