Other big trending topics in the news include a wide-range of discussions and opinions on Carrier Ethernet Exchanges. This will continue to be a topic of discussion as Neutral Tandem seeks to close on its acquisition of Tinet the beginning of Q'4 2010. The acquisition will bring Neutral Tandem's global Carrier Ethernet Exchange to 99 Points of Presence (PoPs), making it the largest Ethernet Exchange on the market.

Acquisition news will also stay in the news, at least for the coming months as PAETEC announces its acquisition of Cavalier Telephone for $460 Million, puts itself on the Auction Block and Lightower announces its intention to acquire Lexent Metro Connect, of course the deal is still pending completion.
