Total revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was $383.6 million, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 1%, compared to the year-ago period.

In the second quarter of 2010, XO’s Broadband offerings generated $220.0 million in revenue, an increase of $24.6 million, or 13%, from the year-ago period. This increase resulted from the continued growth in XO’s diverse broadband offerings, such as IP-VPN, IP Flex, Ethernet and Dedicated Internet Access services.
The revenue growth in XO’s Broadband services is partially offset by the year-over-year decrease in Integrated/Voice and Legacy TDM services. Revenue for Integrated/Voice Services during the second quarter of 2010 was $56.8 million, a decrease of $17.7 million, or 24%, compared to the year ago period. This category is inclusive of XO’s wholesale long distance offering, Carrier Long Distance Termination (CLDT), which declined $4.2 million compared to the year-ago period. This decline was the result of aforementioned targeted price increases implemented to improve margins on selected routes.

XO Communications (OTCBB: XOHO) today announced the availability of 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) network services in all major metropolitan markets the company serves across the United States. The new capabilities are designed to meet growing demand for ultra high-bandwidth and low latency network connectivity by enterprise and wholesale customers.

* 40 Gbps Wavelength services: Allow customers to use a single 40 Gbps link for ultra high-bandwidth network connections between two locations and provides operational benefits of managing one link instead of purchasing multiple 10 Gbps links.
* 40 Gbps IP Transit services: Allow customers to aggregate large volumes of Internet traffic over a single connection and not have to manage multiple dedicated Internet access circuits.
