As the lake-effect snow fell this morning in Buffalo, New York, some exciting news hit the wires. No, we’re not talking Buffalo Bills free agency, we’re talking about network expansion via one of the largest players in the Niagara region.

Earlier today, 365 Data Centers announced that Niagara Regional Broadband Network (NRBN) has established a new point of presence (PoP) at its Buffalo data center. The new partnership with NRBN brings 365 Data Centers’ growing carrier list up to 25 in the Buffalo facility.
