Integra Telecom expands agreement with Utah

Integra Telecom on Tuesday was awarded a cooperative contract with the State of Utah to provide its suite of Internet, Ethernet, voice and data transport services for local government, libraries and colleges within the state.

Although Integra has already established a working relationship with the state, being named as an approved vendor means the company can now provide a larger set of services to any city, county or state agency that is looking for an alternative telecom supplier.

In addition to providing a broader range of services, Integra can offer products at modified and competitive prices that not only comply with a state or local agency's technology needs but also with its budgetary constraints.  

Winning this contract with Utah is important to the CLEC, as it is further proof that Integra can be an effective player in the larger business market segments like state and local government, which has been a particularly healthy vertical segment for the company. Over the past few months, it has also won a contract with the Oregon Health Network and signed on with the State of Washington to provide Ethernet services.
