ADSL: Internet Express Network Extends Leadership in Southern California DSL Internet Services to San Diego County – Company Business and Marketing

Internet Express Network (IE Net), the leading DSL Internet access provider in Southern California, Monday announced an expanded partnership with NorthPoint Communications, a data Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) based in San Francisco, to San Diego County.

IE Net and NorthPoint first partnered in June 1998 to provide DSL service in the greater Los Angeles area. This partnership provides IE Net’s DSL Speed services with near blanket coverage of the major metropolitan areas in Southern California. DSL Speed delivers high-speed Internet access at price points that are affordable for businesses of any size.

“With DSL technology, we’ve lowered the barrier to entry for dedicated Internet access,” said Terry Lee, President and CEO of Internet Express Network. “DSL is a giant step for small and medium-size companies who previously considered high-bandwidth Internet access cost-prohibitive.”

Since introducing DSL Speed in June, IE Net has established itself as the leading DSL Internet Service Provider (ISP) in Southern California. “IE Net is dedicated to focusing on the Southern California market in order to provide the absolute best DSL and business-class services to local businesses,” said Lee. “In expanding our DSL services to San Diego County, IE Net can now service the major metropolitan areas of Southern California with near blanket coverage.”

DSL Speed offers scalable, high-speed Internet and intranet access at a fraction of the cost of conventional ISDN, frame relay and leased line technologies. Service levels range from 144 Kbps up to 1.5 Mbps, starting as low as $139/mo. DSL Speed is now available in wide areas of Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino, San Fernando Valley and San Diego County. IE Net’s services also come with an exclusive performance guarantee, and for a limited time IE Net is waiving all circuit installation charges.

“Internet Express Network has done an excellent job delivering DSL Internet services to the greater Los Angeles area, and we’re pleased to be extending our partnership to San Diego County,” said John Stormer, vice president of marketing for NorthPoint Communications. “Internet Express Network’s success at delivering high quality business-class services and outstanding customer support makes them a valuable partner in Southern California.”
