What You Should Know About XO Communications

The are many partners in the Telarus community doing very, very well with XO Communications. Telarus has been one of XO's most consistent partners since the day we signed with them back in 2006 due to their product suite and 1,158,000-mile fiber network. All XO SMB products are fully integrated into our patented real-time quoting tool known as GeoQuote. Telarus agents have the ability to generate instant quotes for virtually any XO product, view underground fiber routes and lit buildings for XO anywhere in the country, and to interface with an internal quote team trained on XO.

The XO network has nearly 1,000 central office collocations, 3,000 fiber-fed buildings, 28-31 Ghz spectrum in 75 markets, and processes more than 25 billion VoIP minutes a year.
