Item 8.01.  Other Events

As previously disclosed, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” or “Commission”) initiated a formal investigation of Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc. (the pre-bankruptcy emergence predecessor to AboveNet, Inc. (the “Company”)) in June 2002.  On December 15, 2006, the Company received a “Wells” notice from the SEC staff in connection with such investigation indicating that the SEC staff was considering recommending that the SEC bring a civil injunctive action against the Company alleging that the Company violated various provisions of the federal securities laws. In response to the Wells notice, the Company provided the SEC with a written submission.

On March 19, 2007, the Company received a notice from the SEC staff stating that the investigation of Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc. has been terminated and that no enforcement action against the Company has been recommended to the SEC. Such notice was provided to the Company under the guidelines of the final paragraph of Securities Act Release No. 5310 which states, among other things, that “[such notice] must in no way be construed as indicating that the party has been exonerated or that no action may ultimately result from the staff’s investigation of that particular matter. All that such a communication means is that the staff has completed its investigation and that at that time no enforcement action has been recommended to the Commission.”


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

Date: March 23, 2007
