LOS ANGELES, CA, June 30, 2010
- DSL Extreme, a leading provider of high-speed Internet access and business communications services, announced today the addition of new high-speed Business Ethernet services, in partnership with Covad Communications. These high bandwidth services will be available in two flavors across the US, with a heavy focus initially on the greater Los Angeles market. DSL Extreme's Business Ethernet services are attractively priced and highly reliable, with a 99.9% uptime guarantee and a dedicated in-house 24x7 business customer support team. These enterprise-grade Ethernet offerings complement DSL Extreme's other Business Plus services for small to medium-sized business customers – including DSL, T1, and hosted Email.
"Business Ethernet offers higher speeds and less complexity than T1, for roughly comparable prices," noted George Mitsopoulos, Vice President and General Manager of DSL Extreme. He added, "Business Ethernet is the next evolution that enables SMBs to operate more efficiently and move more IT services into the cloud." Business Ethernet services from DSL Extreme meet the needs of small, medium and remote offices by enabling business customers to run the latest IP applications between multiple points on their networks. By working with Covad, which has an extensive history of managing copper services, DSL Extreme can offer new services from a trusted partner and expand the options available for their customers.
