This month, we reached an important milestone. As a result of our latest build out of Central Offices across the country, MegaPath, now Fusion Connect, is now the largest provider of on-net Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) services in the United States.

According to Brian Washburn, Research Director, Network Services, Current Analysis, “With the latest central office deployment, MegaPath, now Fusion Connect, has met its goal of becoming the single largest, national competitive operator of Ethernet over Copper in the country.”

MegaPath, now Fusion Connect, offers EoC on its network in 19 major markets and counting. Services are available in markets nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Miami, and San Francisco, reaching millions of businesses with symmetrical upload and download speeds up to 45 Mbps.

The good news is that there’s more to come. MegaPath, now Fusion Connect, will continue investing in its Ethernet network and announce new markets for Ethernet over Copper throughout 2012.

MegaPath, now Fusion Connect, partners continue to grow their businesses leveraging Ethernet as a viable alternative to T1 broadband access. As we previous mentioned, Ethernet over Copper is predicted to surpass legacy T1 services by 2014.

Question of the week: Why has your business turned to EoC versus T1?
