WORLDWIDE FIBER TO BECOME 360NETWORKS

VANCOUVER, B.C. ... March 08, 2000, Worldwide Fiber Inc., a global provider of network services, today announced its intention to change its name to 360networks Inc. later this month.

“Although our current name served us well in the past, it no longer captures the direction of our company,” said Greg Maffei, Chief Executive Officer. “The name
360networks better reflects the move beyond our historic business of developing networks to providing a broad range of network services around the world.”

During the next two months, the current brand will be replaced with 360networks on everything from business cards and stationery to contracts and e-mail addresses.
About the company 360networks offers broadband network services for telecommunications companies, Internet service providers, application service providers and data-centric enterprises. 360networks is completing a
60,500-kilometer (37,800-mile) network in North America and Europe, including a trans-Atlantic cable. 360networks and its predecessors have been constructing
communications networks since 1988.

Todd,
Thanks for the links. I found your first link last night when I was trying to figure out the new ticker symbol.
Looks like TSIX or TSX.
I've also been saving up for this one!!!!

You're welcome!

For an opposing view, you might want to check out this post by Skandy on the Canadian board. He's a pretty smart guy, been reading his posts for quite awhile, so he may make you think twice (like me..)
