360networks, a provider of wholesale VoIP services, has decided to expand coverage into the state of South Dakota by adding 35 new rate centers to its network coverage.
With the expansion, VoIP service providers in rural and metropolitan areas can offer South Dakota residents cost-effective Internet calling options.
Officials said that with the addition of 360’s new rate centers in South Dakota, the company will provide support VoIP coverage to over 475,000 residential and commercial phone users.
360networks (News - Alert) provides services in 1,291 rate centers across the Western United States with the ability to reach 59 million people.
“In today’s economy, it is vitally important for consumers and business alike to be able to cut down on their phone bills. We have made it a mission to offer that opportunity to our customers, especially those located in areas that have been underserved by VoIP providers,” said Rick Coma, senior vice president of 360networks.
Coma said that with the addition of these new rate centers in South Dakota, the company is excited to continue on its mission and provide growth opportunities for the customers that serve even the most rural regions of the United States.
Officials claimed that its unique VoIP360 solution is 100 percent IP-based and runs on 360networks’ wholly owned 17,200-mile, fiber-optic backbone, offering maximum reach, reliability and quality of service.
Users can access 360networks’ platform and a la carte menu of services with a single IP connection and feature server. 360networks’ services include dedicated IP connectivity, DIDs, CNAM, E911, origination and termination services.
