Local Businesses Can Benefit From XO's Advanced Data and IP Services, Nationwide Reach and Simplified Pricing

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) - XO Communications (OTCBB: XOHO) announced today the availability of its IP-based voice and data communications services to Raleigh businesses. This expansion marks the company's second network expansion within the North Carolina market, further positioning XO Communications as a leading nationwide telecommunications provider for the region's businesses, enterprises, carriers and government agencies. The company launched Charlotte last spring and is now fully operational in Raleigh.

XO Communications is bringing to Raleigh its broad portfolio of next generation, IP-based voice and data networking services, including high-speed dedicated Internet access, XO Ethernet, XO IP Flex, XO SIP, XO One iPBX, XO MPLS IP-VPN, and XO Interactive Voice Response services. In addition, XO Communications offers a unique and simplified bandwidth-based pricing for its converged IP services that simplifies how businesses in Raleigh can buy and scale communications services to support their changing needs.

"We are pleased to have XO Communications in our area," said Harvey Schmitt, chief executive officer of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce. "Their communication solutions are a welcomed addition to the technology services in the Raleigh and Research Triangle region. We wish them great success."

As the second largest business market in the state, Raleigh sits in the heart of the "Research Triangle" -- an eight county region between the cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The area is renowned for its leading technology firms, world-class universities, medical research centers and hospitals. In February 2009, Raleigh was selected by Forbes as one of the "Best Places for Business and Careers" for the third straight year as a result of its burgeoning technology-based marketplace and rapid population growth.

"This latest expansion strengthens XO's foothold in North Carolina and reinforces our position as the leading communications provider for businesses across the region and nationwide," said Carl Grivner, chief executive officer of XO Communications.
