XO Communications, despite all the issues and problems, is back to building big networks. The company says it has finished its next generation network that connects 75 cities and spans about 18,000 route miles is now complete.

The new XO long-haul network initially delivers 100 Gbits/sec of capacity and sets the stage for a ten-fold capacity increase up to 400 Gbits/sec between any two cities on the network. The increased capacity enables XO to deliver 10-Gbit/sec high-speed transport services to meet the increased bandwidth needs of businesses and wholesale customers. In addition, the deployment of digital optical technology enables XO to provision or upgrade customer circuits in a matter of hours versus days.

The network is based on Infinera technology. In order to better sell the network, XO also announced two new divisions, including XO Carrier Services, which will well sell wholesale bandwidth, wholesale voice, and IP services to other carriers including cable operators. The current trends in the market are helping companies like XO, Level 3 and Global Crossing make a strong comeback after having near death experiences after the telecom bubble popped. Do you think these companies (and several others) continue to do well in the near future?

  1. Sorry to bother, but this a draw for the YouTube events, which attracted me to here.

    Ok, what is The Next after Web 2.0 ?

    If Web 2.0 is syndicating, sharing and taking the internet to its elementary pieces, then the Next is applying activates on the elements of Web 2.0.

    If sharing is exercised by delivery of contents, then another scale of processing the information in a sharing manner is opened up for communities.

    If Content is an elementary piece, then the Next is relations per se.

    Imagine peers employing each other’s machines, as in the manner of grid computing or distributed computing, but shortly, where the peers themselves form the tasks and where their machines have their exclusive and different knowledge base.

    Please do some due diligence. The only reason XO and Global Crossing are coming back is because of fradulent bankruptcies that were allowed.

    As the formula went in telecom bubble then burst days:

    -Build it
    -Bankrupt it ( and scew the common shareholders)
    -Come back stronger

    The corporate BK laws in this country are a joke. The super rich get richer at the expense of many middle class Americans most of which haven’t yet really experienced real pain…but many will in next few years.

  3. What’s really amazing is how cheap the stock is (XOHO)– it won’t be for long as they’ve positioned themselves for strong revenue growth via both their wireline division AND broadband wireless thru Nextlink…

  6. As km4 mentioned above – that person knows what going on…

    I worked for this company in a upper leadership role during those years & received very FAT bonus checks before, during, & after our claims. I’m no longer in telecom but stay away from this group. In fact,there was a bunch of us who left soon after we cleared (including the CEO & CFO)

  8. I don’t know what the previous posters are talking about. I work for a Fotune500 company that has used XO Communications for years with excellent results. We are now in the process of expanding our relationship with them…

  9. XO is horrible, lie across the board, i’ve hear during company training that they encourage phone support to lie to the customers about when they are going to receive support. I had to basically fake tears on the phone to the carrier of my local loop to get answers, answers that XO wouldnt provide and otherwise had lied to me about. THE WORST!!! XO IS JUST GOING TO END UP BANKRUPT AGAIN AT THIS RATE!

  10. Not trying to pile on, but I pity the single “Fortune 500″ poster who loves XO. They just havent been screwed yet like the rest of us, but they will. The senior leadership team at XO is unscrupulous to say the least. The CEO, Carl Grivner, doenst have a clue and it is just a matter of time before their #1 owner, Carl Ichan, sends him to the CEO graveyard. He allows his HR hencelady (Ms Burke) to do stupid things and his VP of sales, Tom Cady, to encourage sales tactics that are just immoral, if not illegal. Stay away from XO !!!
