Mr. Lodge will participate in the CEO interview session Mapping the Competitive Landscape for Service Delivery in the Metro Markets, taking place Thursday, January 27 at 11:30 AM. Metro Connect is the definitive meeting place for the domestic wholesale market, bringing together C-level delegates from the metro fiber and local access markets in the U.S. to share insights and strategize for the year ahead.

Mr. Lodge will join a panel of industry-leading CEOs from EdgeConneX, Lightower Fiber Networks and Lumos Networks discussing the consolidation trends in the market, the move away from the traditional business models, investment in growing enterprise services, and what role Cloud and data centers are playing in changing the landscape of the increasingly complex global data connectivity market. 

“Global Capacity’s leading technology and global reach uniquely position it to fundamentally transform the way companies buy network connectivity,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. “Our recent acquisition expands the reach and depth of Global Capacity’s network and product portfolio, delivering access to over 98% of the U.S. market and offering our customers more options to connect to even more choice locations, while improving price performance and building on the double-digit growth we enjoyed this past year.”

One Marketplace simplifies service delivery, ensuring the best client experience by providing customers with a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill multi-network, multi-geography requirements, as well as a single contract SLA, bill and point of contact.
