MegaPath to Expand Ethernet-over-Copper to 50 U.S. Markets

MegaPath, the new local exchange carrier formed through the merger of Speakeasy, Covad Communications and MegaPath, unveiled plans to expand its facilities–based Ethernet over Copper infrastructure to 15 markets by the end of 2011 and an additional 35 markets by the end of 2012.

During the first phase of the expansion in 2011, the Company will add more than 300 Central Offices (COs) in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. By the end of the second phase in 2012, MegaPath will have one of the largest Ethernet over Copper capable networks in the United States with about 680 Central Offices.

"Ethernet over Copper is proving to be the next wave in Internet connectivity – offering extremely high performance at a price point much lower than competitive offerings. By aggressively building out our network, MegaPath is once again showing our commitment to our customers and partners, by providing them with a new leading -edge network that can support all of their critical business applications," stated Craig Young, MegaPath's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
