MegaPath Inc., the CLEC comprised of Covad, MegaPath and Speakeasy, on Wednesday launched nationwide Ethernet service for SMBs, hoping to target businesses fed up with their T-1s.

It’s another MegaPath product channel partners may sell.

MegaPath said its Ethernet service, dubbed Ethernet 2x2, has the lowest cost-per-megabit on the market with dedicated access to 2mbps symmetrical upload and download speeds. Prices start at $259 per month, with bundled Ethernet and hosted voice service going for $229 each month. That bundle requires at least five lines of digital, analog or SIP trunking.

“Too often we hear from small or mid-sized business owners that they are surprised how much slower their Internet service is than the speeds their provider quoted, not to mention how dissatisfied they are with the call quality delivered through that shared connection and their VoIP service bundle," said Bruce Chatterley, president of business markets for MegaPath. “I challenged our product and engineering teams to end the confusion by developing a cost-effective solution that pairs market-leading voice and data services with high availability and extremely low latency from MegaPath’s nationwide broadband network."

Ethernet 2x2 service is the result, he said, and it comes with service-level agreements and QoS for voice-traffic prioritization, which saves money on bandwidth.

MegaPath specializes in managed IP data, voice and security services.
