APRIL 28, 2010 -- 360networks, a facilities-based full service wholesaler of VoIP, transport, IP, and local access services, says it is providing fiber connectivity to facilitate the provision of wireless services for Frontier TeleNet, expanding broadband options and opportunities for anchor institutions and citizens in eight rural Oregon counties.

Frontier TeleNet is a partnership with Gilliam, Sherman, and Wheeler counties and the North Central Education Service District. The original Frontier TeleNet WAN included nearly 4000 square miles (avg. population density 1.25 persons per square mile). With the new connectivity from 360networks, Frontier Telnet has middle-mile connectivity across a 20,660-square-mile area in rural and frontier rural Oregon.

"360networks provided us with the affordable bandwidth we needed to sustain the provision of effective and efficient services for our network users," said Rob Myers, Frontier TeleNet general manager.
