Interconnection Agreement Provides New Choices, Competitive Pricing for Businesses


ATLANTA and ST. LOUIS – Cox Business and Charter Business™ announced today that the two companies have teamed to provide a direct fiber optic cable telecommunications link between metropolitan areas outside of traditional service footprints.

Businesses in Las Vegas and Reno, Nev., can now easily and securely connect offices and information systems with a dedicated SONET, Ethernet connection or IP transport service. A similar link has also been established between Cox in Orange County, Calif. and Charter in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

High-capacity data transport and Internet services are attractive to businesses with multiple locations that transport large amounts of sensitive data such as financial institutions, long distance carriers, Internet service providers, hospitals, insurance companies and other businesses that do not want to purchase or lease their own fiber network.

“This agreement brings a competitive choice to businesses that need to communicate with locations in other key commerce hubs in the western U.S.,” said Jim McGann, vice president and general manager, Charter Business. “While customers have always been able to obtain fiber optic network services within the Charter Business and Cox Business footprints, they were limited to regional telephone companies to connect locations across the two footprints.”

“Charter and Cox are responding to customer demand for a better connectivity solution to link their Las Vegas and Reno offices,” said David Blau, vice president and general manager, Cox Business and Hospitality Network, Nevada. “By interconnecting our existing robust networks, we’re able to provide customers with a reliable and competitive choice. The simplicity of one carrier, one network provider, one bill, one number for technical support and seamless connectivity creates immediate cost and resource efficiencies for our business customers.”

Cox and Charter are both facilities-based telecom providers who build and maintain their own advanced networks and provide telephone, Internet and cable television services.
