Pac-West Telecomm expands voice origination service footprint

Pac-West Telecomm, a wholesale provider to traditional carriers and competitive service providers, has expanded the footprint of its voice origination (Dial Access) service.

Offering U.S. access to local telephone numbers and connectivity to the PSTN, Pac-West's origination service has resonated well with carriers and service providers because it provides unmetered session pricing via one interconnection point.

Set to begin carrying traffic by early Q4 2010, the additional footprint will raise coverage to over 40 states and 62 percent of the U.S. population. Specifically, Pac-West will extend services across the southeastern United States, including Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

"Adding to the expansion that we did earlier this year, we see the southeastern United States as being a key region for our customers," said Robert H. (Hal) Turner, chief executive of Pac-West Telecomm in a release.    

Right now, Pac-West provides origination services in over 30 states, with a concentration on the West Coast, Texas, and the Northeast.
