RCN Metro Provides Compliance, LP with Dedicated Secure Fiber Connectivity

HERNDON, Va., – February 16, 2010 – RCN Metro Optical Networks, a division of RCN Corporation (NASDAQ: RCNI) and a premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, announced today that Compliance, LP, one of the largest legal staffing and project management firms in the world, has selected RCN Metro as its primary network services provider.

Compliance, LP is a pioneer in document review and project staging with state-of-the-art project staging centers situated in multiple cities. Their new project staging center at 1660 L Street NW in the heart of Washington’s central business district is available 24 hours a day and can accommodate as many as 300 attorneys. The center is the largest of its type in the U.S., and it is equipped with advanced systems and technology capable of retrieving and reviewing millions of pages of electronic documents each day.

“We asked RCN Metro for assistance with installing a unique fiber-based solution that would grant us more control over our network and scale to meet our bandwidth needs,” said Ari Perlstein, Compliance’s vice president of infrastructure and technology. “Their responsiveness and technology solution has been nothing short of impressive. Compliance is now truly in the driver’s seat and can effectively operate on the RCN Metro network.”

RCN Metro works with customers to gain an understanding of businesses’ networking requirements and designs the needed network architecture.  Standard service offerings no longer meet the complex needs of most businesses.  RCN Metro has built a unique secure pathway into the 1660 L Street NW office building.

“Washington, D.C. is a key market for RCN Metro and our ability to extend our infrastructure right to a building using unique rights of way differentiates us from other telecom providers and brings tangible security and performance benefits to our customers,” said Felipe Alvarez, RCN Metro’s president. “RCN Metro was happy to get the call from Compliance and even happier to deliver on a custom networking solution tailored to their specific business needs.”
