Retail electronics giant CompUSA Inc. in mid-February will begin selling Covad Communications Group Inc.s broadband services in 168 of its stores.
The companies would not disclose the terms of the distribution agreement.
CompUSA will offer all of Covads broadband access services, from shared-line DSL for a small or home office to full T-1 connections. Consumers also will be able to buy Covads products through CompUSAs Web sites.
Placement of Covads business-class broadband services in selected business-focused retail locations represents an important addition to Covads distribution channel strategy, said Charles Hoffman, Covads president and CEO. Partnering with CompUSA will extend our reach into the key small business market.
