LONDON, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NYSE: LVLT) is enabling global managed hosting provider, i3D.net, to enhance the experience of customers worldwide and expand its business into Latin America by connecting to São Paulo, Brazil.
Netherlands-based i3D.net is renowned for its expertise in game-hosting. Almost all of the enterprise-level game publishers work with i3D.net due to its expertise in scalability, mass deployment and ultra-low latency. More than one million people per day play games on i3D.net's 10,000 servers, located at 16 datacenter locations worldwide. The company is focused on delivering the best online experience for gamers wherever they are located, and meeting the growing demand by publishers for game hosting in new markets, including Latin America.
