Lumos Networks Powers Roanoke College with High-Speed Fiber Bandwidth Ethernet Solution

Lumos Networks Corp. (“Lumos Networks” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:LMOS), a fiber-based service provider of data, voice and IP-based telecommunication services in the Mid-Atlantic region, highlighted its expanded relationship with Roanoke College, a four year liberal arts college located in Salem, Virginia, to provide secure, high-speed fiber bandwidth services. The Company constructed two separate fiber builds on the college’s main campus to provide redundancy.

“Lumos Networks has been a key partner for Roanoke College for the past seven years and we look forward to expanding our relationship in the future,” said Rebecca Sandlin, Chief Information Officer for Roanoke College. “The customized, highly secure fiber bandwidth solution that Lumos Networks built for our college has proven to be highly scalable. As our bandwidth demands have grown, our Lumos designed network has grown in lockstep. We have been very pleased with the performance and servicing of our network by Lumos Networks.”

“Roanoke College has been a key Metro Ethernet and SIP trunking customer within our educational vertical since 2008,” said Joseph McCourt, Chief Revenue Officer for Lumos Networks. “We appreciate the trust and confidence that Roanoke College placed in us to develop a customized and highly secure fiber solution and we look forward to the opportunity to continue to add additional services and increased bandwidth over time.”
