RESTON, Va. -- XO Communications today announced that it has completed its new next generation nationwide inter-city fiber optic network and is now carrying customer traffic across all segments. XO has also begun deploying additional capacity upgrades along major routes on the network in response to customer demand. The XO network represents one of the industry's most advanced deployments of digital optical technology and allows XO to more than double network capacity and offer a broader range of higher-speed data transport services to content providers, enterprises and service providers.

"Our new next generation network represents a major competitive advantage for XO in providing nationwide and metro network services to carriers, cable companies, large enterprises and service providers," said Ernie Ortega, president of carrier services at XO Communications.
