Friday, March 14, 2003
NEW YORK, NY -- March 13, 2003 -- Vertex Network Solutions Inc. today announced a marketing alliance with Backbone Communications Inc. (BBCCOM) to provide dedicated T-1 service at historically low prices to small and mid-size companies. Vertex's "New Generation Network Service" extends Vertex's V-TotalSM managed service offering -- a set of technologies and services developed for Internet-based collaboration. This includes the ability to securely transfer large files over the Internet, at a very affordable price.

The offer is available in all 42 metro areas where BBCOM provides services.
