XO Communications Wins Prestigious 2016 ATLANTIC-ACM Award

HERNDON, Va. - May 18, 2016 - XO Communications (XO) has received once again a prestigious ATLANTIC-ACM Service Provider Excellence Award for wholesale communications services. XO was awarded in two categories: billing services (for the fifth consecutive year) and for sales representatives. The awards were based on more than 800 customer evaluations of U.S. long haul wholesale service providers for the 2016 edition of ATLANTIC-ACM's U.S. Long Haul Wholesale Report Card.

The Report Card provides direct customer feedback and benchmarks customer perception against similar competitors in the wholesale long haul sector. ATLANTIC-ACM collects data each year for the Report Card through responses to an online survey sent to buyers of U.S. long haul products. Among several topics, survey questions asked respondents to provide input on the professionalism, integrity and technical expertise of each carrier's sales representatives and how they rate customer touch points for providers with whom they work. The award was presented to XO at the recently-concluded INCOMPAS Show held in Washington, D.C.

"Repeated recognition by ATLANTIC-ACM is a badge of honor for XO," said Jake Heinz, senior vice president of marketing and product at XO Communications. "We are focused on serving our customers and realize they have a choice when it comes to telecom providers. That's what makes winning the awards for best billing services and sales representatives even more special."
