HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ITC^DeltaCom, Inc. , a leading provider of integrated communications services to customers in the southeastern United States, today announced the completion of a network upgrade that immediately enables up to 6Mbps of dynamically allocated bandwidth for integrated Internet access, site-to-site MPLS data, and IP-enabled local and long distance voice in twelve new markets. The technology is now fully available to 85% of Deltacom's footprint, a significant expansion of the service's previous sixteen-market footprint.
The service is offered with Deltacom's Simplici-T(SM) family of T-1 voice and data packages and with its Simpli-Business(SM) product that combines voice and data network services, NEC phone systems, Lexmark printers, and Lenovo towers and laptops.
