MegaPath Completes National Ethernet over Copper Rollout, Adding to the Largest EoC Footprint in the United States

Company Provides High-Speed, Cost-Effective Alternative to Both Slower Consumer-Grade and More Expensive Business Solutions

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — MegaPath, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced that the company has completed its aggressive nationwide Ethernet over Copper (EoC) network expansion, further solidifying its position as the largest EoC provider in the United States. The service is now available in the top 50 national markets.

Ethernet over Copper provides organizations with a high-bandwidth, reliable and cost-effective alternative to expensive high-speed alternatives. Backed by MegaPath’s Secure to the Core™ MPLS network, it also enables users to gain the competitive advantages offered by the company’s Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities when supporting bandwidth intensive or performance critical applications. Already delivering the nation’s largest EoC footprint, MegaPath now offers the service through 693 Central Offices around the country. Most recently, the company added availability in the Las Vegas, Nev.; Richmond, Va; San Antonio, Texas; Hartford, Conn; and Jacksonville and Tampa, Fla. markets.

“Now more than ever, businesses need communications services that deliver the best performance and reliability available,” said Dan Foster, President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “With our nationwide investment in this game changing service, MegaPath is leading the way in providing customers with cost-effective high-performance options that can be tailored to meet their specific needs, which is not possible today with traditional access solutions. EoC not only offers higher bandwidth than a traditional T1 or Bonded T1, but it is also priced lower than these solutions, which is a huge benefit, especially for our SMB customers.”

MegaPath now offers EoC on its network in top 50 major markets nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Miami and San Francisco, reaching millions of businesses with symmetrical speeds up to 45 Mbps.
