[ARCHIVED] XFONE Completes Phase One of Fiber-To-The-Premise Buildout for Levelland and Smyer, Texas

Phase One encompassed the installation of fiber across a 30-mile distance between Lubbock and Levelland. Additionally, as part of Phase One, the Company will soon begin remodeling a building in downtown Levelland to serve as its Point of Presence (POP), sales office and retail store front in the market.

Xfone gained access to the FTTP network when it acquired NTS Communications, Inc. in February. Prior to the acquisition, NTS made significant investments developing the technology and infrastructure of the FTTP platform, which enables unique economies and allows the Company to provide a voice, data and cable “triple play” offering to its customers. The fiber offering is particularly efficient for business and residential customers because it provides higher bandwidth, increasing the speed with which information may be uploaded or downloaded.

Guy Nissenson, President and CEO of Xfone commented, “We have made significant progress in the buildout of our fiber network, achieving 15,000 passings in Lubbock, including in our estimation, approximately 60% of the economically viable business passings in the city. Our service capability includes the highest available bandwidth, operating at approximately 20 times the speed of DSL and we look forward to adding our first Levelland customers to our service network very shortly.”

“FTTP is a growth vehicle for our company, consistently achieving high gross margins. We are focused on maximizing the growth of our fiber network both in terms of customers served and our geographic reach.”

In the coming months, Xfone expects to complete the second phase of the FTTP buildout comprised of connecting fiber from the Company’s existing core fiber network in Lubbock to the intercity fiber route just completed. Following that, the Company will commence the third phase of the buildout, involving the construction of a distribution plant in Levelland.
