MegaPath’s Ethernet Service Provides Small-to-Medium Sized Businesses with a Smart Start for 2011

Nationwide Service Offers Unmatched Price per Megabit; Ends Confusion of Business-Class Speed and Performance

SAN JOSE, Calif., January 5, 2011MegaPath, Inc., one of the leading providers of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, is helping small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) get a smart start on 2011 with its new nationwide Ethernet 2×2 Mbps service. Offering the lowest cost per megabit on the market, MegaPath is redefining both business-class Internet service performance and price.

MegaPath eliminates the confusion of true speed by guaranteeing Ethernet 2×2 service customers receive always-on, dedicated access to fast symmetrical upload and download speeds from their data connection. In addition, MegaPath provides the Ethernet 2×2 service via a single consistent nationwide network that offers the broadest coverage of any provider, with access to 90 percent of businesses across the U.S. Business owners looking to increase productivity and lower costs can take advantage of free activation and installation for only $259 per month. Customers can recognize even greater savings by bundling the Ethernet 2×2 service with MegaPath’s Hosted Voice for $229 per month.

“Too often we hear from small or mid-sized business owners that they are surprised how much slower their Internet service is than the speeds their provider quoted, and not to mention how dissatisfied they are with the call quality delivered through that shared connection and their Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service bundle,” said Bruce Chatterley, President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “I challenged our product and engineering teams to end the confusion by developing a cost-effective solution that pairs market-leading voice and data services with high availability and extremely low latency from MegaPath’s nationwide broadband network. The result is an unbeatable Ethernet package that includes Service Level Agreements, Quality of Service (QoS) for voice traffic prioritization and dedicated speeds that other providers cannot match.”

The Ethernet 2×2 service from MegaPath is a reliable solution that can scale as a company’s needs change, making it the perfect solution for small-to-medium sized businesses. Secure, fast upload and download speeds are important to business productivity, and especially critical to running VoIP. MegaPath’s Quality of Service (QoS) prioritizes network traffic for applications such as VoIP and credit card processing above all other non-critical transactions, eliminating the need to spend more money on bandwidth.

The business benefits of MegaPath’s Ethernet 2×2 service include:

  • 99.99% uptime backed by industry-leading Service Level Agreements
  • 30-day satisfaction guarantee
  • Voice supported by Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Superior customer support
