XO Communications Marks 15,000 Business VoIP Customers

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) -


Highlights / Key Facts:

-- XO Communications announced that its industry-leading business voice over IP services bundle, XO IP Flex, has been deployed by more than 15,000 businesses and supports more than 475,000 customer employees.

-- As a converged IP services solution, XO IP Flex offers businesses all the benefits of IP for voice, Internet access and web hosting with enhanced features, functionality and value for one flat monthly price without having to replace their existing phone systems.

-- Launched nationwide in April 2005, XO IP Flex has become one of the most widely deployed VoIP services bundles for small and medium-sized businesses and distributed enterprises across a wide range of industries. XO Communications has continually enhanced XO IP Flex with new features including higher-bandwidth options, integration with XO's MPLS IP-VPN service, adding Unified Communications capabilities with XO Anywhere, and offering the industry's first simplified, bandwidth-based pricing for converged IP services.

-- XO IP Flex's unique pricing simplifies how businesses can buy and scale IP services to support their communications needs. Unlike other approaches to IP pricing that still are based on traditional TDM services pricing models, XO's bandwidth-based pricing acknowledges that voice is simply another IP application and offers rates based on the size of the port, not on the number of voice lines. Customers simply select an IP port speed from 1.5 to 45 Mbps, a calling plan and any additional features. Because voice is just another application on the IP port, customers pay nothing for incremental lines or voice channels provisioned within the port speed they have with their XO IP Flex service.

-- The combination of XO IP Flex and XO Anywhere enables customers to take advantage of the capabilities of VoIP and Unified Communications without having to make capital investments in new equipment, devices or software.
