OnFiber Introduces AdaptiveLink™

Network Access Solution Creates a Powerful Yet Affordable Alternative to Legacy Infrastructure

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2005 -- OnFiber Communications, the premier source for purpose-built networks, today announced its new metro access solution, AdaptiveLink™. AdaptiveLink will be available to businesses located along OnFiber's extensive national footprint of all-optical metropolitan area networks. For those businesses seeking network connectivity from 10 megabits-per-second to 10 gigabits-per-second, AdaptiveLink is a cost-effective alternative to legacy infrastructure that provides the performance advantages of leading edge Ethernet, Wavelength and SONET technologies.

"With many businesses still relying on older infrastructure for network access, OnFiber wants to raise awareness that there is a more advanced and affordable alternative available," said Brad Cheedle, vice president of sales and marketing, OnFiber Communications. "For thousands of companies across the country, AdaptiveLink is now within reach. As each solution is uniquely designed around exact customer requirements, AdaptiveLink provides numerous advantages for those requiring reliable, secure, high capacity networks for important and time-sensitive initiatives such as the convergence of voice, video and data."

AdaptiveLink offers customers key benefits including:

--  Service provider choice: AdaptiveLink allows customers to reach their
    service provider of choice as OnFiber's extensive metro network is
    connected to nearly every major carrier hotel, data center and Internet
    backbone location.
--  Security and reliability: OnFiber's network is completely diverse from
    Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier (ILEC) infrastructure and as a result,
    affords higher reliability and security.
--  Cost-effectiveness and time-to-market: With proximity to OnFiber's
    network, AdaptiveLink customers can often expect lower operating costs and
    accelerated implementation timeframes.
--  True end-to-end Service Level Agreements (SLAs): All AdaptiveLink
    solutions are backed by industry-leading SLAs that span the entire service.
To begin the nationwide roll-out, OnFiber is launching AdaptiveLink today in the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C. OnFiber plans to make AdaptiveLink available to its additional 15 metro markets throughout the year. Those markets include: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento and Seattle. OnFiber's metro networks support many high-profile customers including the most recognized Internet content and leading technology companies in the world.
