Birch expands DSL broadband footprint by over 60 percent, enhances SMB reach

Birch Communications has extended its BirchNet Broadband footprint by over 60 percent, giving it coverage in 14 states across and adjacent to the Northern Tier, Rockies and Pacific Northwest.

Customers who reside in its network footprint can get the DSL-based BirchNet product, which provides multiple speeds up to 24 Mbps.

Under a new promotion, new customers will be able to get BirchNet Broadband at no extra cost for two months. In addition, customers have the option of bundling their service with a BirchNet voice package so they can take advantage of additional services including nationwide long distance service. 

BirchNet Broadband is now available from Birch in 36 states, reaching nearly 1 million business customers.

Pricing for BirchNet broadband services is competitive, ranging at the low end at $39.95 for the 3 Mbps service to $119.95 for the 24/3 Mbps service tier.

The copper-based broadband DSL service is just one element of Birch's data service offerings. It also offers 1 Gbps in qualified areas using a mixture of Ethernet over Copper and metro fiber-based technologies.

Expanding its network footprint, particularly by lighting more buildings with fiber, has been also a growing priority for Birch.

In April, the service provider announced that it completed the buildout of its fiber network into an additional 46 buildings in four major U.S. markets: Dallas, Houston, Denver and Los Angeles. That buildout expanded its on-net fiber reach to a total of 686 buildings nationwide, reaching more than 20,000 businesses with a suite of IP-based Ethernet and voice services.

Having a diversity of DSL and fiber-based metro services as well as an expanded multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) product means Birch is well positioned to address a wide diversity of SMB and enterprise customers with their growing suite of managed and cloud-based services.
