EarthLink Inc. announced Monday the launch of EarthLink Carrier, its new wholesale carrier services division formed by the combination of assets from recent acquisitions, including Deltacom’s Interstate FiberNet Inc., New Edge Networks’ wholesale segment and One Communications Corp.s carrier business.
EarthLink closed its acquisition of One Communications April 1, folding those business assets into its new division, EarthLink Business, which was formed Dec. 8, 2010, with the New Edge Networks’ and DeltaCom business assets.
The carrier services assets from those acquisitions are being rolled into EarthLink Carrier. EarthLink Carrier’s products include a range of fiber-based transport, voice and data services, and a variety of switched services. In a press statement, the company said EarthLink Carrier seeks to support growing capacity demands and connectivity needs of large carriers, while also providing resellers with wholesale offerings.”
“As we integrate the various businesses which now make up EarthLink Carrier, our customers should see greater opportunity from a product and support perspective, with the back-office work happening behind the scenes,” said Joe Wetzel, EarthLink president and COO.
