RCN said it will “considerably increase” its phone service--beyond the cable overbuilder’s current markets in New York, Boston, Chicago, eastern Pennsylvania and metro Washington, D.C.--using private-label services from voice-over-Internet-Protocol provider Deltathree.
Under the terms of the agreement, RCN will resell Deltathree's hosted-consumer VoIP services while continuing to market its current switched-based domestic and international phone services.
According to RCN vice president of marketing and product development Mark Chinn, the company will extend coverage to “new off-net customers who live or work near our geographic operating areas.”
In addition to core VoIP services, Deltathree will provide RCN with Web development, billing, reporting, fraud management, soft-switch applications, customer-premise-equipment configuration and other services.
Founded in 1996, New York-based Deltathree provides both wholesale and retail VoIP services.
