AireSpring (Booths 207-209), announced it now is offering new local services through CLEC facilities.
AireSpring is offering local T1s and PRIs as well as integrated T1s with local phone lines and Internet access on the same circuit. Rollout will begin in California. Service will follow in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Because many of our agents are concerned about the future of UNE-P-based local products, we felt that offering a purely facilities-based product makes the most sense, says Daniel Lonstein, AireSprings senior vice president of sales and marketing. The embattled UNE Platform is likely to be phased out by the FCC under a court order barring the Supreme Courts intervention in the matter this fall. Experts say that is unlikely.
AireSpring announced its local services roadmap at The Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas in March, and noted it would include a CLEC-based service.
