Hey ISPs and large enterprises, look for the "Private Label," says WorldCom Inc. The telecom giant is rolling out a wholesale DSL service to leverage its IP network.
The Private Label DSL service is designed to enable customers to deliver high-speed Internet access services using WorldCom's facilities-based DSL network, all the while marketing the service as their own.
The service is making its debut in 31 metropolitan markets though 709 Central Offices. Speakeasy and ClearPath have signed up as WorldCom's first customers.
Speakeasy, which secured $6 million in funding earlier this week, will use the service to expand its DSL network. ClearPath will use the WorldCom solution to bring "cost-effective" access to its nationwide fiber-optic network.
