1 Partnering with Education and Research Katherine Beal GM, Carrier Products 360networks Confidential

2 2 Agenda 360networks Overview & Post-Bust Strategies History of partnering with research and education Products & Architecture Q&A

3 3 Overview 360networks delivers high-quality, low-cost, telecommunication services via our powerful North American network We are a major facilities-based carrier with long-haul and metro presence throughout the United States and Canada –29,000-mile North American network –69 North American markets served –46 US markets –23 Canadian Markets –36 North American cities with metro presence Our US focus is wholesale bandwidth services –Targeting carrier and large enterprise customers –Private line and wavelength services Group Telecom provides Canada with a competitive spectrum of telecommunication services –Traditional voice and data products, as well as IP Transit –Over 13,000 Commercial and residential customers

4 4 History & Milestones 360networks origins date to 1987, forming as the telecommunications subsidiary of one of North Americas largest construction concerns, Ledcor Industries Since 1987, weve designed and built optical networks for companies such as AT&T Canada and Bell Canada, as well at 10,000 route miles of our own network Voluntary restructuring in 2002 allowed 360networks to significantly reduce debt without compromising operational delivery and success –Reduced our debt from $2.7 billion, to $215 million upon emergence –Refocused strategy to serve solely the North American sector Acquired Group Telecom in February 2003 –Canadas largest independent competitive telecommunications provider –Strong metro and regional presence throughout Canada –Offers voice and data services to the small, medium, large enterprise and carrier customers Acquired Dynegy Communications in May 2003 –High capacity broadband network spanning more than 16K route miles throughout the US –Access points in 44 US cities –Metro presence in 13 US cities Submitted Asset Purchase Agreement for Touch America Private Line & Internet Business (~ 60 Days to Close)

5 5 Financial Strengths 360networks is a consolidator, successfully navigating troubled Telecom waters Solid revenue base –Recurring revenue approaching $14 million per month Bank approved business plan –Our rationalized network will take $28 Million annually out of our cost structure –Cash-positive EBITDA in 2004. High degree of liquidity –Greater than $63 million of cash with no net cash burn Successfully restructured balance sheet with low degree of financial leverage –$215 million of debt –Interest based on LIBOR plus five percent

6 6 Valued Customers Carrier Customers: –AT&T Canada, Big Pipe, Fusepoint, Infonet, Microsoft, MTS, Navigata, Peer 1 Networks, Sprint, Telus, T-Systems, Universal Access, Videotron, Call Net, CP Railway, HydroOne, KMTS, Qwest, Telus, Thunder Bay Tel Research & Education Customers –Canarie Inc, Canarie Atlantic, GTaNet, Canadian Universities & School Boards Commercial Services Customers: –Cisco, EBay, Electronic Arts, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Bank of Montreal, Scotia bank, RBC Dominion Securities, TD Bank, Alberta Energy, American Express, Bombardier, Allstate Insurance Government Accounts: –Govt of Canada, Govt of Newfoundland

7 7 Post-Bust Strategies Take Advantage of Consolidation Opportunities –Leverage financial sponsorship to augment our network and services with attractive acquisitions Focus on Financials –Cost Reduction –Success-based investment in network augments Cost-Based Pricing for Future Success –Cost + margin based pricing –Cost efficient network architecture facilitates pricing advantage –Positioned to replace inventory Provide Flexible Partnership & Deal Structures

9 9 In Canada, 360 acquired the largest independent local access provider with fiber connectivity to 2,200 on-net buildings –Additional connectivity through unbundled network elements through incumbent Strategic interconnection agreements with U.S. based metro access providers Ongoing effort to increase metro access partnerships –Waves –Transport –GigE Private Line –DS3 Private Line –DS1 Aggregation in US –10/100 Aggregation in US (late 2003, cross border focus) Acquiring additional assets to augment existing network footprint Network Footprint

10 10 Product Differentiators Robust North American Footprint Large footprint (Canada and US) Strategic Interconnection Agreements Performance Leader Proven Performance Will back our performance with: 1.Rigid SLA (Availability/Provisioning) 2.Reporting on SLAs 3.Refund / Credits Provided if SLAs Not Met Technology Leader Mesh Topology – Cost effective protected service offering for data services customers Intelligent Optical Switching 10/100 Ethernet with Local Access in Canada Optical Virtual Private Network (Pay as You Grow – Requires Channelized Interface) GigE Private Line (Pay as You Grow – with GigE Interface)

11 11 Research & Education Partners Major research networks currently supported Unique partnership arrangements and pricing strategies provided to research & education community Experience collaborating with research & education –Allows us to see first hand new innovations in networking application that will emerge in future commercial and carrier sectors –Positions us with business owners / leaders of the future –Brings significant network traffic to our platforms Current major research customers include –CANARIE –GTaNet –Universities and School Boards Working toward partnership with NLR

16 16 Wave & Private Line Services Wavelength Services provides high capacity point-to-point unprotected bandwidth between two locations on 360networks North American backbone –2.5 and 10 gigabit per second bandwidths –Fully transparent Private Line services provides point-to-point bandwidth solutions –DS1, DS3, OCN Private Line in North America –Metro Access Solutions in Canada DS1, DS3 and OCN Services (OC-3 to OC-48) –Metro Access Solutions in US On ramp to Intercity Network Only –North American Intercity Solutions Flexible Protection Options –1+0 (Unprotected), Mesh Protected, and 1+1 Protected Quickly provisioned, flexible, upgradeable

17 17 Pay as You Grow – OVPN (SONET Based) The ability to purchase increments of bandwidth at STS1 granularity (50Mb/s chunks) The ability to quickly upgrade bandwidth when needed – software provisioning after initial port and STS1s established – up to the full speed of the port purchased –15 Business day target for initial provisioning interval – If we miss customer gets one month free service (for POPs with existing SN3000s) –3 Business day provisioning for STS1 provisioning interval – Target is provisioning in hours instead of days The ability to configure protection options (1+1, Mesh or unprotected) at the STS1 circuit level No premium charges above standard point-to-point OCN service pricing

18 18 Gigabit Ethernet Service Gigabit Ethernet customer interfaces Pay as you grow dedicated bandwidth in 50 Mb/s chunks (SONET STS1s) Features –Each STS1 can be unprotected, mesh protected or unprotected –Supports existing GigE interfaces –50Mb/s to a full GigE –Transparent delivery - customer owns flow Control & rate Shaping –Provisioning and availability SLAs aligned with Transport & OVPN Benefits –Significantly lower cost router interfaces –Ability to scale bandwidth up in 50Mb/s increments as customer traffic requirements grow. –No need for any level of in-house SONET expertise. –QOS Simplified No statistical muxing or frame switching is performed. Customer Ethernet frames are directly mapped into their dedicated SONET pipe through the network.
