Hurricane Electric Keeps Growing in Europe
Fremont, California - July 22, 2005 - Hurricane Electric, a leading Technical Service Provider, announced today that it has further expanded its global network in Europe by connecting to another Internet Exchange point in Amsterdam called NL-ix (Netherlands Internet Exchange), a content oriented Dutch national Internet Exchange.

Hurricane Electric is connected to the NL-ix switch via Gigabit Ethernet. The newly added exchange point will create additional redundancies to Hurricane Electric's Dutch infrastructure and will further improve connectivity in Europe and over its entire network. In addition, Hurricane Electric will have numerous additional peering opportunities throughout Europe.

"We are experiencing tremendous growth in Europe. The demand for our European connections is steadily growing both nationally and internationally. As such, we are actively upgrading and expanding our exchange points across Europe to further develop our connectivity and fulfill the demand of our clients," said Mike Leber, Hurricane Electric president.

The new Netherlands connection follows an upgrade to Hurricane Electric's AMS-IX exchange earlier this week. The once Gigabit Ethernet port was upgraded to a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port just six months after the AMS-IX exchange point was added to Hurricane Electric's global network. The NL-ix connection, in conjunction with the upgrade to the AMS-IX port, has dramatically improved connectivity to Europe and has enhanced Hurricane Electric's self-healing network architecture, which now includes thirteen major exchange points around the world.

To celebrate the addition of the NL-ix exchange point, Hurricane Electric is extending two special "Hello Netherlands" offers. The first offer is a transit promotion, which

The second offer is flat rate Gigabit Ethernet transit (1,000 Mbps of IP) for $13,000 per month. Both of these special offers are available in two locations in Europe: NIKHEF (AMS-IX/NL-ix) Amsterdam, NL; and Telehouse (LINX/XPE) in London, UK. They are also available at ten locations in the United States: Switch and Data (PAIX) in Palo Alto, CA; Equinix in Ashburn, VA; Equinix in Chicago, IL; Equinix in Dallas, TX; Equinix in Los Angeles, CA; Equinix in San Jose, CA; Telehouse (NYIIX) in New York, NY; Telehouse (LAIIX) in Los Angeles, CA; Hurricane Electric in San Jose, CA; and Hurricane Electric in Fremont, CA.
