MegaPath Expands Extended Ethernet

MegaPath has expanded availability of its Extended Ethernet services into an additional 208 central offices (COs).

The services are now available in nearly 600 COs, with a goal of 700 by the end of the year. Speeds are up to 12×12 Mbps, reaching 3.2 million business customers in 46 markets.

MegaPaths Business Ethernet services include Extended Ethernet and Ethernet over Copper (EoC). The company says it provides consistent speeds regardless of a customers distance from the CO, making it a non-distance-sensitive alternative to EoC and bonded T1 services for businesses located in outlying areas.

MegaPath continues to strengthen its position as a major national provider of Ethernet services, by offering services to business customers that strike a balance between cost, performance and availability,” said Brian Washburn, service director, business network & IT services, Current Analysis.

MegaPaths Ethernet over Copper (EoC) services are available in 700 COs nationwide, reaching approximately 11 million businesses in all 50 major markets, with speeds up to 135×135 Mbps. MegaPath also recently introduced asymmetrical Ethernet speeds to provide companies with an alternative to cable services by delivering business-class performance and features with real uptime guarantees.
