SALT LAKE CITY -- DSLExtreme, a Los Angeles-based provider of high-speed and traditional Internet services, has expanded its coverage to include the Qwest DSL network in its growing residential and business broadband platform. As of October 1st, DSLExtreme's Qwest coverage area, ranging from speeds of 256Kbs to 7Mps, now includes Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. The expansion helps DSLExtreme offer a highly competitive stand-alone broadband solution to customers without requiring traditional residential telephone services. DSLExtreme will also continue to offer hosting, dedicated connections, dial-up access, email, and exchange hosting to customers throughout the country.

"Adding Qwest services to our network gives us a quick fourteen state expansion and competitive DSL access product for potential new customers in those territories," said Jim Murphy, DSLExtreme President. IKANO Communications, a leading provider of private-label Internet services, recently acquired the operations of DSLExtreme. "IKANO's network infrastructure and strong relationship with Qwest meshed well with our existing network and DSL provisioning system. The platform allows us to expand our retail and wholesale business simultaneously."

Since the acquisition, IKANO has leveraged DSLExtreme to expand coverage and build additional network relationships that will allow its existing customer base to benefit from the acquired solutions.

"The new growth of our DSL network is part of IKANO's present strategy to ramp wholesale DSL services across the country while continuing to service our existing dial footprint," said George Naspo, IKANO CEO. "Our company will keep on the expansion push in order to provide our customers with even larger consolidated networks at reduced rates."
