Following its 2014 network expansion strategy announcement, XO Communications has invested nearly $5 million into the Salt Lake City economy by adding nearly 100 office buildings directly onto its advanced communications network in the region. The company is now able to serve over 800 businesses in more than 300 multi-tenant buildings and facilities in the Salt Lake City area with its suite of IP-based Ethernet, voice and network services, say company executives.
XO has completed fiber construction projects into nearly 550 enterprise buildings across 25 regional markets since announcing the initiative last year. In addition to Salt Lake City, direct connections have been completed in buildings in the following regions: Boston, New York City, the Washington, D.C. area, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Denver, Southern California, San Francisco, the Pacific Northwest and other urban areas.
“Our strategy is to focus on expanding our network where customers have the greatest need. Through 2016, XO plans to continue to strategically add direct fiber connections to certain buildings that are within proximity of the XO high density fiber and Ethernet network,” said Chris Ancell, CEO of XO Communications.
