September Telecom Provider News

Here's the Telecom Provider news for September .....

AboveNet - announced it has connected its fiber optic network into the new Latisys Ashburn Colocation Campus in Virginia, Options Data Centres in London, and the first carrier tenant to reside at TELEHOUSE's new, premium data center facility at 85 10th Avenue, in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.

AT&T - The Federal Communications Commission may continue to monitor AT&T even after the carrier's merger with T-Mobile, suggesting an approved purchase could come with certain conditions. The FCC and Justice Department have signaled they will increase regulation in the telecommunications industry if they approve the merger. The announcement may mean the government may force AT&T and Verizon Wireless to keep their prices from rising to help prevent a duopoly, or even make AT&T sell some of its acquired spectrum to Sprint to keep the underdog company competitive.

Comcast Business Class- Comcast has added Michigan to its list of states - including Pennsylvania, California, Colorado, Illinois and Florida -- where the cable ISP is offering services that support the next-generation Internet standard known as IPv6.

Integra Telecom....

* Integra Telecom will leverage Palo Alto Networks' platform to deliver its upcoming Cloud Firewall Service offering, which will include a mix of new security services, including everything from application visibility and control to URL filtering, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS), anti-virus, anti-spyware and file/data content filtering.

* Integra Telecom may be a fiber-rich service provider, but since it's not economically feasible to deliver fiber-based Ethernet to every building, it's complementing its fiber network with Ethernet over Copper (EoC).

Level 3 Communications....

* Level 3 Communications, Inc. and Global Crossing announced that, at separate special meetings, stockholders of both companies voted to approve Level 3's proposed acquisition of Global Crossing.

PAETEC - announced that it has successfully provisioned high-rate Ethernet services in excess of 200 megabits per second (Mbps) via its advanced Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) network.


* 360networks announced it has completed the deployment of capacity for TelePacific Communications into Chico, California. To support TelePacific's specific capacity and interface requirements, 360networks converted its Chico optical regeneration site into a point of presence (POP) site, able to support the needs of other customers as well.

* TelePacific Communications is launching national MPLS and managed services thanks to its acquisition of Telekenex, which is expected to close in the third quarter.

Time Warner Cable - will buy Insight Communications Co. for $3 billion in cash as it bolsters its presence in the Midwest, the company said Monday. The privately held cable operator serves more than 750,000 customers in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. It has about 537,000 high-speed data subscribers, 679,000 video subscribers and 297,000 voice subscribers.


* As Windstream continues its transformation into a broadband and business service provider, it has found another way to give its SMB customers more for their services dollar by upping their respective bandwidth speeds. Under the new speed regime, SMB customers can get their choice of 10 Mbps/2 Mbps, 24 Mbps/2 Mbps, and 24 Mbps/4 Mbps speed tiers.

* Arunas Chesonis, chairman and CEO of Paetec, will exit the company following its planned acquisition by Windstream which, if all goes according to plan, will mean a dramatically expanded service provider led by Jeff Gardner, current Windstream president and CEO.
