DSL Extreme Launches High-Speed Business Ethernet Service

Value-priced asymmetric broadband services provide companies with a true business-class alternative to cable services

LOS ANGELES, CA, January 7, 2014 - DSL Extreme, a leading broadband Internet access provider nationwide, announced the expansion of its high-speed Business Ethernet service portfolio, in partnership with MegaPath Wholesale, the carrier division of MegaPath that provides facilities-based, wholesale telecommunications services in North America. In addition to DSL Extreme's symmetric Business Ethernet services, the company now offers asymmetric speeds ranging from 8x1 Mbps up to 50x10 Mbps, giving small, medium and large business customers affordable bandwidth options backed by business-class service level agreements (SLAs). The new Ethernet services are all value priced, starting at only $115.00 per month.

According to George Mitsopoulos, Chief Operating Officer of DSL Extreme, "We are extremely excited about our new high-speed access offerings for business customers. Our parent company, IKANO, has developed numerous partnerships with leading technology companies to offer best-of-class service and support and an outstanding value proposition to enterprise clients. Our partnership with MegaPath and our new Business Ethernet service is the latest example of that ongoing commitment."

For businesses with greater downstream than upstream bandwidth demands, asymmetric Business Ethernet services offer several advantages over other value-priced services like cable, including superior performance and reliability, backed by business-class SLAs, and a business-class platform engineered to support voice and video.

"Businesses with multiple locations and remote workers will find the asymmetric Ethernet services to be very compelling and cost effective," added Mitsopoulos. "And DSL Extreme always offers top notch customer support to add to the customer experience."

DSL Extreme's Business Ethernet service portfolio provides organizations with high-bandwidth, reliable and cost-effective solutions, as compared to expensive high-speed alternatives. In addition to its new asymmetric Ethernet services, DSL Extreme offers symmetric Business Ethernet services that deliver more dedicated bandwidth at lower costs than traditional or bonded T1 services. Business Ethernet uses newer technology with greater throughput at the high end of the portfolio than T1 and DS3 services and is extremely failsafe and reliable, with a 99.9% business-class SLA uptime guarantee. Ethernet is also easier, faster and less costly to connect and scale than T1 and DS3 services.
