White Plains, N.Y., March 10, 2010 — AboveNet, Inc. (NYSE: ABVT), a leading provider of high-bandwidth connectivity solutions, announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.

“In 2009 we posted strong results that were in line with our expectations for revenue growth, Adjusted EBITDA margin and capital spending,” said Bill LaPerch, AboveNet’s President and CEO. “We executed well against our strategy to grow with our customers and enlarge our addressable market by focusing on lit services. In 2009, for the first time, lit services revenue surpassed dark fiber revenue. We also turned free cash flow positive, giving us additional capital for growth.”

“Beginning in 2010, we plan to invest a greater portion of our capital spending on projects designed to position the company for growth over the next five years,” added Mr. LaPerch. “The market for next-generation Wavelength and Ethernet services is in its early stages, opening up attractive growth opportunities for us. We intend to leverage our capabilities as a focused provider of high-bandwidth solutions to help us achieve industry-leading growth rates over the long-term.”
