Level 3 will also provide a IP virtual private network, optical wavelength, Ethernet access services, network routing options and redundancy services to the U.S.
The U.S. Courts of Appeals, U.S. District Courts, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts and U.S. Courts of Special Jurisdiction will use the network, Level 3 said.
