Alpheus Publishes Pre-Qualified Ethernet Building Database

Houston, Texas (December 15, 2009)

HOUSTON: Today Alpheus announced that it has published an online database of over 7,000 buildings that are immediately available for Ethernet circuits. Alpheus has provided Ethernet services over its Texas Metro footprint for years, and adding this list of pre-qualified addresses will allow customers to quickly confirm service availability. “To serve our customers’ targeted marketing efforts, we are enhancing our automated order entry system with buildings that are ready for service orders today,” said Kent Major, Alpheus President. Major continued, “This list is not exhaustive; we can serve thousands of other buildings in Texas with our Metro Ethernet network.”

This database supplements Alpheus’ 27,000 building database database published earlier this fall for traditional broadband services. For more information, contact the SVP of Carrier Sales, Chip Robertson at 713-336-6500 or visit www.alpheuscommunications.com
