MegaPath Announces Launch of MegaPath Wholesale Brand, Replacing Existing Covad Wholesale

SAN JOSE, Calif. - October 3, 2011 - MegaPath Inc., one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced the rebranding of its wholesale division, Covad Wholesale, to MegaPath Wholesale. The brand change demonstrates MegaPath’s continued commitment to the wholesale market and the integration of a broader portfolio of network and cloud-based security offerings under one common brand.

"Enabling other carriers to leverage our network extends our value to a broader group of organizations across the country and provides them with cost-effective, high-quality products and services," said Craig Young, CEO, MegaPath. "Under the MegaPath Wholesale brand, we are eager to continue growing our partner base and deliver solutions, like nationwide Ethernet over Copper, that allow our partners and their customers to get the most out of their telecommunications investments.”

MegaPath Wholesale leverages the same network, operations and partner-facing support tools that made it a trusted partner under the Covad Wholesale name. Customers and partners will continue to receive the operational excellence and support they have come to expect from the company that supports their growing businesses. Furthermore, MegaPath Wholesale’s partners will still be able to access the company’s Connect partner portal.

In September 2010, MegaPath merged with Speakeasy and Covad Communications to create one of the largest end-to-end facilities-based networks in the country. Since then, the wholesale division has operated as Covad Wholesale, and its broadband services are available in 240 markets across 45 states, addressing more than 60 percent of all U.S. businesses.
