UUNET readies global assault

Published on .

UUNET Technologies, an Internet service provider, is making several investments to bolster its presence worldwide. UUNET plans an equity investment in AUNET Corp., which provides Internet access in Asia, and also recently acquired a majority interest in UUNET Canada. The company has also acquired Internet stakes in the U.K. and Germany.

UUNET will offer subscribers international "roaming," the ability to link to a local Internet service provider for Internet access. Roaming will be available in 92 cities around the world by May 31. UUNET last month agreed to merge with MFS Communications Co., a telecommunications company.
