360networks takes VoIP services to the Sacramento market

360networks, a facilities based wholesale service provider, has expanded its wholesale VoIP footprint in Sacramento, Calif. market.

Through this expansion, 360networks will be able to provide wholesale VoIP services in 47 rate centers, covering more than 1.4 million people in the Sacramento area. The move into Sacramento follows 360networks' earlier expansion into the Northern California market.

Overall, the expansion into Sacramento ups 360networks' total wholesale IP Origination and IP Termination services to 1,488 rate centers and 70 million people across 17 Western U.S. states on its own 17,200 route mile fiber backbone.

Although Rick Coma, 360networks senior vice president, acknowledged this latest network expansion brings its VoIP support to a total of "15 of the west's largest metropolitan areas," is just one part of its ongoing investment strategy in the Western region.

"We will continue to invest in our network, so our customers can meet growing demand for VoIP services in rural, suburban and metropolitan markets across the west," said Coma.
