Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – March 5, 2007 – Web host, Internet and telecommunications services company, XO Communications, has initiated a new campaign to offer competitive rates and guarantees for high-capacity network services delivered over its nationwide inter-city and metro networks.
The XO campaign offers carriers, cable companies, content providers, large enterprises and wireless companies increased incentives to leverage XO’s suite of inter-city and metro network transport solutions, including Ethernet, IP transit, and wavelength services. To support the campaign, XO has initiated the 3 Guarantee Program consisting of the following guarantees that XO will offer to any large enterprise and wholesale customer to beat valid competing offers for comparable high-capacity network services:
— Best Price Guarantee: XO will beat any competing price for 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps wavelength services along select major XO network routes. — Install Guarantee: XO will provide a one month service credit for these wavelength services if it fails to meet the agreed upon service delivery date. — 90-Day Risk Free Trial Guarantee: XO will allow customers to trial its IP Transit Service for one 90-day period without commitment. If the customer is not satisfied, the customer only pays for the services used under the trial.
To meet anticipated demand, XO will pre-deploy additional capacity across its nationwide network and in the more than twenty of the largest carrier hotels in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Palo Alto, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle.
Ernie Ortega, President of XO Carrier Services remarked, “As a result of customer demand and success we have seen thus far, XO has taken additional actions to meet growing demand for high-bandwidth network services. Demand is also increasing as carriers, service providers and large enterprises are looking for new providers in the face of industry consolidation. With our extensive nationwide and metro networks, XO offers customers an extremely attractive alternative.”
