FREMONT, Calif. -- February 21, 2014

Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and a
leading colocation provider, today announced that Renesys, the authority in
global Internet intelligence has named Hurricane Electric to its Baker’s Dozen
list of top Internet providers of 2013.

According to the January 9, 2014 report, Hurricane Electric’s addition to the
list can be attributed to an increase in transit from the Communications
Authority of Thailand (AS 4651) and Rostelecom (AS 12389)

“Hurricane Electric is thrilled to be part of this prestigious ranking,” said
Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric. “This recognition reflects the
hard work of Hurricane Electric’s team and our commitment to provide as much
Internet service as possible to as many people as possible around the globe.”

Renesys began their “Baker’s Dozen” in 2008 by compiling the 13 providers that
spent time in the Top Ten rankings the previous year. In its most recent
report, Hurricane Electric was named to this list among the other top global
players powering the world’s Internet.

Hurricane Electric employs a resilient fiber-optic topology, and has no less
than four redundant paths crossing North America, two separate paths between
the U.S. and Europe, and rings in Europe and Asia. Having first deployed IPv6
in 2001, Hurricane Electric offers IPv6 as a core service; every customer is
provided IPv6 connectivity as well as classic IPv4 connectivity. Over the last
nine months, Hurricane Electric has added 15 new exchange points including
Madrid, Winnipeg, Chicago, and Denmark.
