StarView Solutions Selects XO Communications to Provide Expanded and Enhanced Transport Services

October 19, 2009 by  

Hosting Tools HERNDON, VA – XO Communications (OTCBB: XOHO) today announced that it has been selected by StarView, a supplier of business-ready IP communications solutions, to provide Dedicated Internet Access and Ethernet over Copper transport services. By choosing XO – a Tier 1 Internet provider with national reach – the company will be well positioned to offer customers high-speed, high-capacity VoIP services at a competitive price.

The upgrade to Ethernet over Copper expands StarView’s product offering, giving customers the option of increasing their network speed up to 20 Mbps. The faster and more efficient network connects directly to StarView’s Class 5 switches, offering a high-quality connection to users. The enhancements also allow StarView to support multi-location enterprise customers whose needs go beyond T-1 service, previously the only type offered through the company.

“This alignment with XO enables us to deliver services on a national scale while providing a better-quality end-user experience,” said David Walsh, president, StarView Solutions. “Our established history with XO’s proactive network management and monitoring had already proven to us the company’s commitment to high-level service, making this network upgrade an easy decision.”

The company expects to attract more multi-location, multi-state enterprise customers as a result of its upgrade. StarView customers, utilizing XO’s superior high-capacity bandwidth, will be able to more quickly and effectively download and share data-intensive, latency-sensitive files across the Internet.

“Being able to give carrier customers access to a top-of-the-line network is the main reason we’ve invested more than $450 million in the last two years to grow and enhance our nationwide infrastructure,” said Don MacNeil, vice president of XO Carrier Services Operations. “Our customers are now able to reach nearly half of all businesses in the United States through some of the most advanced, high-capacity network services available.”

In addition to its focus on infrastructure enhancements, XO has also taken care to ensure it is providing superior service through everything from day-to-day customer interaction to innovative service-level initiatives. The company recently introduced “Ethernet Everywhere,” a service availability guarantee (and the first of its kind by any nationwide service provider) that ensures carrier customers can obtain Ethernet services anywhere within XO’s coverage area. The guarantee follows the ongoing and popular “10 Gigs in 10 Days” offering, as well as the Wavelength FLEX program – all established to provide flexibility and accessibility to customers.
