Los Angeles, CA & Rochester, NY – February 12, 2007 – AireSpring, one of the fastest growing providers of telecommunications services to corporate and residential customers in the U.S., today announced a resale partnership with One Communications—the largest privately-held competitive local exchange carrier in the United States.“Adding One Communications as an underlying local network provider brings our total coverage to over 125 major national markets,” said AireSpring COO Daniel Lonstein. “We are particularly pleased that the One Communications network allows us to offer T-1/PRI, integrated voice and data, and broadband IP transit services in many Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets where we previously had no coverage. With our 6 national CLEC networks, we now support 95% of the markets most businesses need to be in. This secures our position as the nation’s largest CVNO (CLEC Virtual Network Operator), and allows us to support the vast majority of locations for enterprise clients seeking simplified, unified billing and service for local voice services nationwide. Our strategy not only offers clients significant administrative savings, but we are normally able to provide considerable hard dollar savings on their monthly telecom expenditures.”
“We’re excited to add AireSpring to our growing list of Carrier clients,” stated Nick Sgroi, Vice President Carrier Services for One Communications. “The partnership with AireSpring allows us to leverage our significant network resources while using this valuable relationship to improve our offering. We are looking forward to working with them.”
