Sprint Launches Nationwide Ethernet Access Service

Sprint announced availability of an Ethernet Access service as an alternative to Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) options. The new Ethernet offer complements other converged access services including Sprint Data Link and Sprint Business DSL.

Sprint Provided Ethernet Access is now available nationwide and connects from the customer's premises to the Sprint Global MPLS or DIA networks using an Ethernet local loop. Benefits of Sprint Provided Ethernet Access include:

  • Sprint coordinates all aspects of the local loop delivery for its end-user customers.

  • Broadband speeds ranging from 2 Mbps to 1 Gbps, subject to market availability.

  • Lower costs for both equipment (customer router ports) and circuits (local loops) over TDM.
