XO Communications Expands Network Presence in Seattle Metropolitan Area

Market Expansion Allows XO to Reach New Customers and Further Address Needs of Multi-Location Enterprises

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) -  XO Communications (OTCBB: XOHO) today announced an expansion of its metro network presence in the Seattle metropolitan market. The initiative demonstrates XO Communications' strategy to expand its presence in existing XO markets in order to serve more enterprise customers with its award-winning IP-based communications and managed network solutions and exceptional customer experience.

By expanding the reach of its 19,000-mile nationwide network and establishing additional points of presence across the Seattle market, XO Communications is now able to serve thousands of new businesses and offer them a more competitive alternative for their local and nationwide communications and networking needs. The expansion increases XO Communications' reach across the northern suburbs of Seattle in Everett, Kirkland and Bothell and adds to the company's already extensive Seattle network presence where its metro fiber network spans 200 route miles.

"We have seen increased demand for our services from multi-locations businesses in areas adjacent to our markets and have opted for a smart growth strategy through network expansion."
