Less that three weeks after finalizing a similar agreement with Verizon, Level 3 Communications has secured a long-term interconnection deal with AT&T that covers the providers’ IP networks.

The contract means that traffic will continue to move freely across one company’s network and onto the other’s. Additional capacity and new interconnection locations between the two will allow customers to get high-quality network performance and reliability.

In a joint statement, the companies said agreements such as this “allow the exchange of Internet traffic in a dynamic, robust and reliable manner” as the Internet evolves.

“This agreement will benefit Level 3’s and AT&T’s customers for years to come,” said Anthony Christie, chief marketing officer for Level 3. “With customer needs at the forefront, you enable a growing, secure and resilient interconnection environment.”

“We are dedicated to continuing to ensure customers have the best network experience,” said Roman Pacewicz, senior vice president of marketing & global strategy for AT&T Business Solutions. “By adding capacity with Level 3, customers will continue to experience high performance speeds to meet their needs.”
