It said that people can now also interconnect with the Neutral Tandem global voice network via SIP\IP in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, and the United States of America.

Neutral Tandem recently acquired Tinet, a global carrier specialising in IP Transit and Ethernet wholesale. The acquisition combined Neutral Tandem’s interconnection services for wireless, wireline, cable and broadband companies with Tinet’s global IP backbone. Now, Neutral Tandem offers voice, IP Transit and Ethernet solutions to carriers, service providers and content management firms.
