RCN Relaunches Business Solutions

RCN Corp. a triple play provider of competitive cable TV, high-speed Internet and local and long-distance phone services has reorganized its commercial sales and service efforts to relaunch its RCN Business Solutions organization.


RCN Business Solutions is a wholly owned, but separately managed, division of RCN Corp., dedicated to service the business community in the enterprise, wholesale carrier and government account sectors.


The company has plant with 500 feet of 20,000 commercial buildings in its markets, and it’s expanding in terms of geography and buildings passed. RCN markets include Boston; Chicago; New York City; Philadelphia/Lehigh Valley; San Francisco; and Washington, D.C.


Its services include business continuity/disaster recovery, resilient routing, fast and gigabit Ethernet, data center connectivity, campus fiber rings, Class 5 switching, VoIP peering, e-mail protection, inside and outside plant construction services, business cable TV, and more.


Peter D. Aquino, the company’s new president and CEO, says the group’s business is incremental revenue on top of RCN Corp.’s residential revenues. He also notes the business cable TV RCN is able to offer in light of its residential offer is “a nice thing to put in your bag that the others can’t.”


RCN, which had a scheduled bankruptcy running from May through December, in March was relisted on the NASDAQ following a major reorganization. The company reports it has achieved EBITDA of $46 million. “It’s a great place to be right out of bankruptcy,” says Aquino, adding the company even increased its guidance earlier this year. “We like where we are.”
