Globix Partners with Covad for DSL Service
NEW YORK – February 22, 1999
New York, New York, February 22, 1999 Globix Corporation (Nasdaq: GBIX) ) a leading provider of Internet service and one-stop Internet-based solutions for businesses, has reached an agreement for DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) service with Covad Communications Company, (NASDAQ: COVD) a high-speed DSL Internet connectivity provider. The relationship was established to assist Globix with the deployment of one of its newest services – Globix SDSL Internet Access, a high-capacity, SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) Internet connection.
Globix SDSL Internet Access is a business-quality solution, which provides symmetric data flow – enabling customers to simultaneously send and receive information at the same speed. It offers Internet connectivity at speeds nearly 40 times faster than most dial-up modem connections and more than eight times faster than dual-channel ISDN. In addition, Globix SDSL Internet Access links customers directly to the Globix facilities via a round-the-clock connection that’s always ‘on,’ bypassing busy signals and eliminating wait time. And unlike an ISDN line, SDSL is not subject to usage-sensitive pricing.
Marc H. Bell, President and CEO of Globix Corporation said, ‘We are pleased to have this new relationship with Covad, widely regarded as the industry’s top DSL service provider, and with the addition of the DSL service. It will offer our smaller business customers a cost-efficient, high-performance Internet connection that compliments many of our value-added services, such as Dedicated Access, Web Hosting and Co-location.’
Keith Markley, Covad Eastern regional president said, ‘We recognize the importance of an alliance with Globix, a leading provider of Internet connectivity which is offering the advantages of DSL to the business community. We will work together to provide high-speed Internet access and to support Globix as it expands its services nationally and worldwide.’
