PAETEC Makes Extensive Fiber and Ethernet Footprint Available to Agent Channel

New capabilities are a result of the acquisition of Intellifiber Networks and a focus on extending custom solutions and support into PAETEC's agent channel

FAIRPORT, N.Y. - April 4, 2011

PAETEC Holding Corp. (NASDAQ GS: PAET), a Fortune 1000 company that provides advanced communication solutions to businesses nationwide, today announced that its newly acquired Intellifiber network and products are now available for PAETEC's channel partners to sell nationwide. PAETEC's additional fiber capabilities with Intellifiber are a result of the acquisition of Intellifiber in December of 2010. The broad and unique Intellifiber portfolio includes solutions for fiber, Ethernet, and custom network design and build projects to serve the diverse needs of the agent channel.

"I've spent my career embracing the channel collaboratively and as a critical component of organic revenue growth," said Clint Heiden, president of Fiber Services. "These services have had incredible growth internally at Intellifiber, and I'm confident by extending our expertise, that our channel partners will immediately find ways to increase revenue and lower churn." PAETEC's 37,000 route-mile fiber network is now among the largest nationally of competitive local communications providers.  New capabilities now available for the agent channel include Ethernet (3 Mbps to 10G), Wavelengths (1G to 10G), SONET (DS1 to OC192), Ethernet over Copper (EoC), industry-leading low latency routes, and custom network builds. All products are available for both metro and long-haul applications.

In addition to these services, PAETEC boasts one of the largest EoC presence on the East Coast with 275 fiber-fed central offices serving over 200,000 end user locations. In 2011, PAETEC will add another 160 central offices doubling the end user coverage. PAETEC's low latency routes gained through the acquisition include diverse networking, industry leading RTD SLA's, two-day service activation, and dedicated latency monitoring.

In addition to point-to-point connectivity, these access methods are also part of PAETEC's unique portfolio to serve businesses including extensive network and managed services, cloud and data center solutions, and innovative communications software to drive efficiency.

All services are available through the existing PAETEC Channel Program. Training is available on an as needed basis.

"These services allow us to become more strategic in our approach in serving our customers and more relevant to their long term networking needs," said Kristine Barton, director, solutions engineering at ARG, a PAETEC agent. "The ability to have access to the solutions along with the technical resources makes the PAETEC model very unique in the market and gives us more opportunity to differentiate as we consult with clients on their high-bandwidth requirements. In today's market where larger, scalable bandwidth is in high demand, the PAETEC offering could not be more timely."
