XO Communications is a subsidiary of XO Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: XOHO) and a leading nationwide provider of advanced communications services and solutions for businesses. The company announced today the launch of “Ethernet Everywhere”, a service availability guarantee ensuring its carrier services’ customers can obtain ethernet services anywhere within XO’s coverage area.
This service availability guarantee is the first of its kind by any nationwide service provider. President of XO Carrier Services, Ernie Ortega, said, “It’s well understood that the largest problem facing the industry with ethernet is its lack of widespread availability.” XO is attempting to solve that problem for businesses across the country.
XO’s ethernet access options range from 3Mbps up to 10Gbps and are used to support a variety of services such as private line and dedicated internet access. Offered through the end of 2009, the guarantee is available to any of the company’s carrier services customers that chooses up to 10Mbps ethernet service within one of XO’s 42 ethernet-enabled local access and transport areas (LATAs).
This program is the latest in a line of unique and industry-leading guarantees from XO Carrier Services. One guarantee issued by the company is the popular “10 Gigs in 10 Days” – the industry’s first installation guarantee promising wholesale customers installation of up to 10Gbps transport service within 10 business days. Another popular guarantee is the recently introduced Wavelength FLEX program, which gives customers the ability to respond to evolving business and network demands without incurring additional costs.
In each of the last four years, XO has generated more than $1.4 billion in revenue while executing its strategic long-range expansion plan. In the last two years alone, XO has invested more than $450 million to grow and enhance its infrastructure, resulting in a footprint covering more than half of all businesses in the United States. Such investments have enabled XO to become a leading, more agile provider of the most advanced, high-capacity network services available.
