USCarrier Telecom LLC (Booth 709), a wholesale provider of high-speed long-haul transport, has added three new local offices to its existing long-haul network. The locations include PoPs and interconnect facilities at the RBOC main local central offices.
The RBOC colos are the main PoPs in Augusta, Savannah and Macon, Ga. These new locations will supply increased connectivity requested by USCarrier Telecom customers, in addition to the existing locations in these cities, according to the company.
The new points of presence facilitate the handoff of customer traffic between USCarrier Telecoms long-haul and the RBOCs local networks, making the company more competitive in those markets, said Jack Roberts, vice president of sales for USCarrier.
USCarrier also has network upgrades planned for completion in 2006. In Georgia, those include Albany, Athens, Atlanta, Augusta and Macon; in Florida, Jacksonville and Tallahassee; and Mobile in Alabama. USCarrier Telecoms long-term goal is to enable next-generation networks throughout its metro and regional networks in the Southeast.
