Metropolitan Telecommunications Inc. (MetTel) said Tuesday it has extended its wholesale agreement with Verizon Communications Inc. The companies originally signed a deal in December 2004; that contract replaced MetTels UNE-P arrangement with Verizon, since the FCC had just announced it would eliminate UNE-P requirements. MetTel serves customers in the same 28 states as Verizon. Nationally, the company owns more than 185,000 lines in 48 states.
“The extension of this agreement provides MetTels customers and business partners with a stable environment upon which their businesses can grow and prosper well into the future, MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow said. This stability will also enhance MetTels ability to deliver the products, services and support our customers require and our agents value.
MetTel provides local, long-distance and advanced business and data services, including Internet access and VoIP platforms.
