Alpheus lights South Texas Fiber Network

HOUSTON, September 3, 2010: Today Alpheus Communications announced plans to light its fiber network assets in South Texas, providing transport and bandwidth services in McAllen, Laredo and Harlingen in early 2011. The network will connect at many of the popular interconnection points in the region to provide access and local loop capabilities, as well as interconnection with Mexican carriers for northbound IP transit and traditional point-to-point bandwidth needs.

Chip Robertson, Senior Vice President of Sales, said “We are excited to offer these important new markets to our customers.” Robertson added, “Alpheus already provides near ubiquitous coverage in the largest Texas markets. These fast-growing cities are a natural extension of our current geography and will allow Alpheus to meet the increasing bandwidth requirements of our customers.”

Francisco Maella COO said “This extension of our long haul network with new metro rings will provide the same high levels of reliability that customers have come to expect from Alpheus.”
