Endstream gets CLEC license in Florida

Endstream, an emerging retail and wholesale competitive provider, will soon be able to offer its suite of services to medium and large businesses and carriers in Florida.

Beginning in Q2 2011, the competitive provider will provide everything from local termination, origination, Ethernet over Copper (EoC), and long-haul data to both carrier and business customers.

Florida is one stop along Endstream's nationwide expansion. This year, the service provider plans to launch service in New York, New Jersey, Texas and California, as well as several unnamed states in the Southeast and Midwest.

A key piece of Endstream's expansion effort will be its ability to offer more of its wholesale customers access to its StreamDialer, a mobile application that allows subscribers to access long distance carriers directly.

"In adding local access products to Endstream's existing portfolio, we can now provide a complete end-to-end solution to wholesale and retail customers from the premise to mobile applications--using StreamDialer," said Erik Levitt, Endstream's CEO in a release announcing its Florida market launch. "Our wholesale customers can now maintain their subscribers whether they are at home, in the office, or on their mobile phones."
