Speakeasy to Merge with Covad and Megapath June 14, 2010

Posted by Jim Locke in Partners.

speakeasy I was alerted by the folks at Speakeasy that they will be merging with Covad and Megapath in the 3rd quarter of 2010. The move was made in order to expand the reach of the Speakeasy network and improve its capabilities in the areas voice, Internet access, VPN and managed services. The move will make Speakeasy the first Managed Services Local Exchange Carrier (MSLEC). You can view details about the merger here.

Of course, my first concern was how this move would affect SMBTN members who are engaged with Speakeasy. To date, it looks like a win, as it will not only expand the areas of service but also the types of services we can offer and it does not alter our current agreement with Speakeasy. Regardless, we are planninmg to schedule a conference call so you can ask the questions that you want answered about how the merger may affect your business. I would also invite you to comment here so that we can ensure that we have answers for most of your questions for you on the conference call.

In the interim, if you have any specific questions, I would invite you to give Scott Goddard (our Speakeasy rep) a call. Of course, you may also call our office at (888) 467-6286.
