Rocky Mountain Broadband Approved in W. Virginia

Rocky Mountain Internet
Wednesday said its Rocky Mountain Broadband subsidiary has
received approval from the Public Service Commission of West Virginia to
provide local exchange (CLEC) and long distance (IXC) services throughout
West Virginia.

Under the certification, Rocky Mountain Broadband can operate as a provider
of local exchange and long distance services offered by common carriers in
West Virginia.

Rocky Mountain Broadband will begin offering West Virginia with local
exchange and long distance phone services next quarter. Currently Rocky
Mountain Internet provides Internet access, e-commerce solutions and
voice/data and multimedia service to that area.

“Approval of Rocky Mountain Broadband as a West Virginia local exchange and
long distance provider, comes on top of our recent approval in California
and adds significantly to Rocky Mountain Internet’s
national reach and further positions the company as a national provider,”
said Douglas H. Hanson, chairman, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain

“As a West Virginia communications provider, we will now be able to market
local and long-distance services as well as Internet access via our
frame-relay and ATM network RMI gained through our recent acquisition of
DataXchange,” Hanson said.
