AccessPlus is a facilities based competitive access provider (CAP) operating in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Over the last 18 years, AccessPlus has invested heavily in a Metro Ethernet network which uses state-of-the-art components.
The AccessPlus network has been carrying carrier class backhaul and local access circuits for large regional and national service providers for many years. Our ability to provide customized solutions and rapid response to network support issues and to provide technical knowledge for both circuit implementation and customer support with network problems far exceeds what carriers traditionally experience from the ILEC.
As a registered CLEC in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, AccessPlus is able to collocate in the ILEC COs which increases our ability to provide all possible connectivity options to our customers.
The AccessPlus “Carrier Class” network provides all of the elements of a true “next generation” network including:
Fully ringed Metro Ethernet compliant network through the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires
Fully ringed SONET network through the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires
Certified CLEC in Massachusetts and New Hampshire
Collocated in numerous central offices in Massachusetts
Network operation center with remote monitoring of all network components
Able to construct fiber segments to reach customers who are not on existing fiber routes
Can provide diverse routes using fixed wireless
