Pine Tree Networks taps RCN Metro to increase network bandwidth

DECEMBER 8, 2008 -- Maine-based Pine Tree Networks has chosen RCN Metro Optical Networks to help it extend service to customers in New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

DECEMBER 8, 2008 -- RCN Metro Optical Networks (search for RCN Metro), a division of RCN Corp. and provider of fiber-based network equipment, today announced that it will be expanding its relationship with Pine Tree Networks, a Maine-based company that provides telephone and Internet services to homes, businesses, and service providers throughout New England.
RCN Metro has been providing Pine Tree Networks with a Virtual Private Network (VPN) offering that provides high-speed connections to locations throughout New England. Pine Tree says the VPN service has allowed it to deliver cost-effective services to its customers--and now it needs additional bandwidth to expand to new markets.  

"RCN Metro recognizes that the need for access to a reliable, fiber-based network extends past the traditional Tier 1 markets to underserved, rural markets," reports Felipe Alvarez, president of RCN Metro Optical Networks. "RCN Metro has long been the provider of choice to markets such as Portland, ME. We are pleased to provide Pine Tree Networks with additional bandwidth so that they can continue to grow their business."
Pine Tree Networks says it originally chose RCN Metro for its outstanding network design and high-quality service and support.
"For a Maine-based telecommunications business competing within and outside of our state, it's critical to have access to affordable, multi-megabit transport to a wide variety of locations," notes Trevor D. Jones, director of sales and marketing of Pine Tree Networks. "RCN Metro has successfully quadrupled the bandwidth available to us so that we can expand our coverage to include customers in New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island."
