Deltacom Expands GigE, 2.5Gbps and 10Gbps Wavelength Services

ITC^DeltaCom has extended its GigE, 2.5Gbps and 10Gbps wavelength services availability to a number of new markets across the Southeast. The wavelength services are now available in the following new markets: Wilsonville and Mobile, AL; Savannah, Augusta and two additional carrier hotels in Atlanta, GA; Lake City, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Tampa, Ocala, Archer and Pensacola, FL; Columbia and Greenville, SC; and Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, NC.

The company said its network upgrade is ahead of schedule with the completion of its Infinera DTN optical network systems deployment. Deltacom expects to complete the deployment of additional SONET equipment and to build out a number of metro markets by mid-year 2009.

ITC^DeltaCom, which is based in Huntsville, Alabama, has a fiber optic network spanning approximately 15,800 route miles, including more than 11,800 route miles of owned fiber.

"We were able to complete the DTN deployment a month earlier than originally planned," said Tony Tomae, Deltacom's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
