Pathnet (www.pathnet.com), a carrier’s
carrier for second- and third-tier U.S. markets, has announced investment
contracts with Colonial Pipeline Co. (www.colpipe.com),
Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. (www.bnsf.com

million. As part of the agreements, Pathnet will receive the right to develop
more than 12,000 miles of the investors’ right-of-way holdings.

Each of the companies is contributing various levels of rights of way at

Pathnet and proportionate representation on the company’s board of directors.

Pathnet expects the transactions to close as soon as it obtains regulatory
