Alpheus Communications Reports Rapid Growth in Carrier Sales

HOUSTON and SAN FRANCISCO – April 16, 2012  Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber and networking solutions, today announced its rapid growth in sales driven by bandwidth demands of carriers to satisfy end-use customer needs.  Increasingly, carriers are moving to fiber-based network infrastructures and Ethernet services for connectivity, and Alpheus provides the fast installation, flexible service options and personalized support that gives carriers the ability to provide more responsive service to their customers.

Alpheus owns and manages its metro and regional long-haul network, which is designed to give carriers multiple service options and increased control over the last-mile.  With a significant copper and fiber footprint in Texas, Alpheus delivers reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity from DS-1 to OC-192, Ethernet services, Internet, dark fiber and managed wavelength solutions that ensure the highest degree of network performance and support carrier customers’ mission-critical information technology needs.

“Alpheus prides itself on delivering powerful connectivity solutions, multiple service options and unparalleled customer support that keep our customers coming back year after year,” said Chip Robertson, senior vice president, carrier sales, for Alpheus Communications.  “Our recent growth is a direct result of the quality of service and effective solutions we provide, which is significant given the high demand we’ve experienced as carriers continue their 4G/LTE build outs and migrate from SONET-based services to Ethernet for connectivity between markets, carrier POPs and their end users.”

In addition to expanding its carrier customer base, Alpheus’ growth has been helped by the Texas economy.  As one of the most productive state economies, Texas is a leader in job creation and is home to 51 companies listed on the Fortune 500.  Alpheus has a significant presence in the metro areas of Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, and its metro and regional long-haul network provides high-performance, end-to-end connectivity for its carrier customers.

In response to the company’s recent growth and acquisition by The Gores Group in 2011, Alpheus CEO, Scott Widham is speaking at the COMPTEL PLUS Spring 2012 Convention & EXPO in San Francisco on April 17.  Widham will be moderating the session, “Navigating the Capital Markets: Calm Seas or Choppy Water?” in which he will guide a discussion to analyze the current state of lending for the telecom industry and examine merger-and-acquisition activity that is reshaping the marketplace.
