Covad Selects Samsung for ADSL 2+ Network Buildout

Covad Communications announced progress in its plans to deploy the largest ADSL 2+ network in the U.S. by the end of 2006. This phase of the build-out covers Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, San Diego and Washington, DC, joining San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle and Dallas, where Covad's next generation network is already in service.

By the end of 2006, Covad will offer line powered voice access, and have the capability to offer higher-speed broadband access, such as ADSL 2+ and G.SHDSL, and new business-class services such as metro Ethernet and bonded T1.

Covad has chosen Samsung as its network equipment provider, and is now the vendor's largest North American customer of network equipment.
