Global communications company Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc. hopes to accelerate its initiative to launch ASP and e-business services in the U.S. using its acquisition last week of ISP Shore.Net as a springboard.
Mclean, VA-based Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc. offers a portfolio of bundled domestic and international e-commerce, Internet, data and voice services. New England-based Shore.Net provides complex Web hosting, co-location and broadband connectivity services to more than 30,000 small and medium-sized enterprises and a limited number of residential customers in the New England region.
According to Primus, Shore.Net is a technologically advanced ISP that will serve as its main U.S. Internet provider and will play a major role in developing a national Internet presence for Primus.
"Shore.Net serves as an important building block for us to become a national provider of comprehensive ASP, e-business and broadband connectivity services," said K. Paul Singh, chairman and chief executive officer. "We are now a single source provider of managed co-location, complex Web hosting, streaming media, content delivery, e-commerce, broadband access, security and consulting services."
Gray will head the new company, which will be a division of Primus. According to Shore.Net, all of its management team has agreed to remain.
