Short Take: Frontier to double network capacity

Frontier Communications, a fiber optic telecommunications carrier, said it will double capacity on its Internet Protocol-based backbone network. Frontier expects to have two circuits capable of OC-48 speeds--2.5 Gbps (gigabits per second)--between New York and Los Angeles by the end of the second quarter. The company, which was recently acquired, also plans to increase speeds to OC-192, or 10 Gbps, by early 2000.
