OnFiber Communications says it is offering service to underserved central offices (COs). The company will combine the resources of multiple carriers to give carrier customers an alternative to purchasing directly from the ILEC.
We wanted to help competitive carriers deal with the continuing challenge of the elimination of UNE-P, says Thom Sumbler, vice president of business development for OnFiber Communications. By offering an alternative into selected COs, OnFiber is addressing a market need and building existing and new relationships within a dynamic carrier community.
OnFibers new service allows carriers to extend their network and services using SONET. Initially, DS3, OC3 and OC12 point-to-point circuits will be available into select COs surrounding the Washington, D.C. and Atlanta areas.
OnFiber says it might extend service to additional COs and offer more transport service options later this year.
