CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2013) -  Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, today announces the expansion of its One Marketplace platform with a new Point of Presence (PoP) in the 2500 Allegheny Center Mall in Pittsburgh, PA. Allegheny Center Mall is the primary carrier hotel in Pittsburgh, the 22nd largest market in the U.S. and a gateway to the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast.
