JANUARY 2, 2007 -- US Signal (search for US Signal), a provider of data bandwidth capacity in the Midwest to enterprise and carrier customers, plans to expand its fiber-optic network to include seven additional on/off ramps in metro Milwaukee, WI, by January 31 of this year.

US Signal's network deployment includes an 81-mile fiber SONET ring extending around Milwaukee powered by the Cisco 15454 optical platform. Network access points include MILWWI12, MILWWI13, MILWWI16, MILWWI45, MILWWI48, MNFLWI32, WKSHWI47, and the Wells Building at 324 East Wisconsin Avenue.

"We're excited to bring US Signal facility-based solutions to Milwaukee over our dedicated fiber network," stated Stephen Oyer, executive vice president of sales and marketing. "The addition of the metro Milwaukee SONET ring and connecting DWDM transport adds cost-effective access for advanced data solutions, as well as one-stop connectivity within or outside of the Midwest region."

US Signal also lit two new access points in Illinois at La Grange (LGRCILLG) and Northbrook (NBRKILNT). Both access points were added to its protected DWDM fiber routes already serving the Illinois/Chicago markets.

"US Signal continues to expand in regions where its customers seek alternative providers," said Barry Raterink, president. "These important network additions provide competitive choices to customers seeking affordable connectivity and advanced data solutions."
