Adelphia Selects Level 3 for Wholesale VoIP

Adelphia Communications, the fifth-largest cable operator in the U.S., selected Level 3 as its exclusive wholesale VoIP services provider for residential voice services that Adelphia expects to begin offering to customers in select markets in 2005.

Level 3 will provide Adelphia with (3)VoIP Enhanced Local service, a wholesale residential voice solution that provides connectivity to the PSTN and other enhanced features.

Adelphia currently has approximately 5.2 million cable customers and 1.4 million cable modem Internet customers in 31 states and Puerto Rico.

"This agreement with Level 3 allows Adelphia to bundle residential voice services with our existing suite of cable and Internet offerings without us incurring the costly expense of building out PSTN termination capability in LEC central offices," said Marwan Fawaz, CTO for Adelphia. "We chose to partner with Level 3 because the company provides carrier-quality, SIP-based wholesale voice services that accelerate our time to market."http://www.level3.com
