Tata Communications, a leading provider of a new world of communications, today announces a further expansion of its network into Russia via a local Moscow point of presence.

It delivers services to over 1,600 wholesale customers, 10,000 enterprise customers and more than 600 mobile operators – this includes over 100 service providers in Russia and CIS that are serviced from the Moscow office.
