Re: Strategic border
Yes, it's interesting to speculate whether Google's fiber efforts have been the carrot to get others to move more quickly to that infrastructure and expansion to more territories. Getting the Mexixo/US corridor is a move that should prove very profitable in the long run for business and consumers.

Re: Strategic border
Seems to make a lot of sense to coordinate the DASH circle with movement to the Mexican border.  Extending its 100G network to the border with Mexico is going to be keeping them ahead of the competition if it's pulled off successfully.

Re: Strategic border
It sounds like a good expansion plan, Liz. Yes, I believe so. I lived in Monterrey for a year, some years ago. The business expansion and growth back then was impressive. So just imagine how everything has advanced in these past years. This is really good move from Telia.

Re: Strategic border
Fiber is incredibly important when it comes to utilizing the cloud. I'm glad to see proper infrastructure is being built out in order to support these software needs. Lots of bandwidth is required to make this software go, and service providers are taking note. Maybe they learned from what Google has been doing and its plans to roll out Fiber service everywhere in the US.

Re: Strategic border
He also mentioned Laredo, Texas as a key city. With Dallas being a hub for traffic, I think we'll see quite a few service providers looking to benefit from Mexico's growing traffic. AT&T is also expanding there -- one year ago it announced a $3 billion expansion plan

Strategic border
"As for why Telia chose Texas, Pascucci said one of the reasons was because Telia Carrier wanted to extend its network to the border with Mexico. "There is a huge amount of growth in traffic between the US and Mexico," he said.

Texas is a quite strategic point for Telia. Monterrey, Mexican border with texas, is a big and industrial city. The many companies there will benefit from Telia's offer.
