SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - IntelePeer, a leading provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications and SIP Trunking, today announced new E-rate Services tailored to meet the needs of public schools and other educational institutions. IntelePeer's E-rate Services include subsidized communications services for schools and libraries throughout the United States.
