XO Communications this week announced the launch of “Ethernet Everywhere,” a service availability guarantee ensuring its Carrier Services’ customers can obtain Ethernet services anywhere within XO’s coverage area. The company says this guarantee is the first of its kind by any nationwide service provider.
XO’s Ethernet access options range from 3Mbps up to 10Gbps and are used to support a variety of services such as private line, dedicated Internet access, and MPLS IP-VPN. Offered through the end of 2009, the guarantee is available to any Carrier Services customer that chooses up to 10Mbps Ethernet service within one of XO’s 42 Ethernet-enabled local access and transport areas (LATAs). Should XO be unable to deliver the service within the agreed upon timeframe to the requested location, the customer will receive a one-month credit equal to the value of the Ethernet service ordered.
