PLEASANTON, CA, Nov. 7, 2012 — MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced the launch of its extended Ethernet service, which expands the reach of MegaPath’s leading Business Ethernet access to customers in areas where Ethernet over Copper (EoC) service is unavailable. With this launch, MegaPath’s Business Ethernet services now reach more organizations needing connectivity to support VoIP, Internet access and MPLS/VPN network requirements.
MegaPath’s extended Ethernet service currently reaches close to one million businesses in 25 key markets including Phoenix, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In Phoenix, the number of businesses now reached by MegaPath Ethernet services has tripled. The extended Ethernet service provides the same speeds regardless of its distance from the Central Office (CO), making it an excellent option for businesses located in outlying areas.
“Ethernet is ideal for businesses seeking a cost-effective, high-performance access solution to support their bandwidth-intensive applications, and MegaPath is leading the way in our nationwide deployments,” said Dan Foster, President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “With the broadest Ethernet footprint in North America, MegaPath is continuing to invest in an aggressive Ethernet build out, which now extends the reach of Ethernet service to even more business customers. As businesses recognize the need for increased bandwidth at lower prices, MegaPath is the only provider proactively addressing their critical business requirements.”
MegaPath’s Business Ethernet services provide organizations with high-bandwidth, reliable and cost-effective alternatives to more expensive access solutions. Business Ethernet services offer more resiliency by using loop bonding technology that ensures if one loop in a bundle fails, the remaining circuits will continue to function. Backed by MegaPath’s Secure to the CoreTM MPLS network, the services also enable users to gain the competitive advantages offered by the company’s Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities when supporting bandwidth-intensive and performance-critical applications.
MegaPath recently completed its 2012 Ethernet over Copper expansion project, solidifying its position as the largest EoC provider in the United States. MegaPath plans to continue investing in its Ethernet network and will announce new Ethernet capabilities in early 2013.
