US communications holding company AT&T Inc (NYSE:T), has expanded the reach of its OPT-E-MAN switched metro Ethernet services to incorporate the 13 states in the former SBC territory.

AT&T said the extended coverage area enables businesses in the 13 states with access to broadband connections to use the switched metro Ethernet service to link multiple locations. It confirmed the expansion extends OPT-E-MAN service reach in Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin.

According to AT&T, OPT-E-MAN provides a fully managed, switched Ethernet service which gives customers a solution for creating broadband links across multiple locations, either across a town or state. A company can connect its headquarters with remote sites to share information across employees, suppliers and customers, while schools can link campuses to ensure bandwidth for Internet, e-mail, administration needs and distance learning.

The service can be configured in various ways, including multipoint-to-multipoint, point-to-multipoint and point-to-point, with service scalable from 5Mb/s to 1Gb/s.
