Consolidated Communications (News - Alert) delivers fiber network solutions to enterprise customers. The company’s key services include dedicated Internet access, voice services including Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP) and Primary Rate Interface (PRI), hosted IPBX, Wide Area Networks (WAN) and managed services/disaster recovery/colocation.

As part of the company’s strategy to solidify its presence in new markets, Consolidated Communications has just announced the expansion of its enterprise and commercial services to the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The expansion builds on the success of Consolidated Communications’ network that currently operates commercial and residential services in the greater Houston, Texas area, as well as Illinois, California, Kansas, Missouri and Pennsylvania.

The company now owns 30,000 fiber miles of network in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area, which has been used to serve its wholesale and carrier customers to date. It will begin offering the new redundant fiber network to enterprise customers, where nearly 10,000 businesses have been pre-qualified as on or near to the network.

"We are thrilled to begin offering carrier grade commercial services in the Dallas/Fort Worth market," said Bob Udell, president and chief operating officer, Consolidated Communications, in a statement. "We have long history of delivering both reliable, high quality communication solutions and superior customer service to businesses."

The network expansion will help the fiber network provider address the customer’s needs faster with experienced, local account executives, sales engineers and customer service, said the Consolidated Communications’ Dallas sales manager Chris Milligan, in a statement.   

"We don't follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Our solutions can be customized to meet the unique needs of each business, and they are scalable, so we can support and grow with our customers," Milligan added.

Consolidated Communications recently announced two major promotions in its senior management team. Michael Smith (News - Alert) was named chief marketing officer while Tom White was promoted to chief technology officer at Consolidated Communications.

Smith joined Consolidated Communications in 1989 and held management positions in sales, product management, marketing and customer service. He also served as General Manager of the company's former Consolidated Market Response in Charleston. White joined the company as a supervisor in the former Consolidated Communications Operator Services division in 1992.
