XO Holdings (news, filings) has expanded operations across the 'Inland Empire' region of southern California. I must admit, being from the east coast I had to look that one up on Wikipedia. The inland empire is the area headed by San Bernadino and Riverside, amongst others. It's a fast growing area of course, which is surely one reason why XO has focused resources there.
Southern California is one of XO's strongest markets, with over 600 miles of fiber in the overall metro area. Now they have added new PoPs across the region, a sales office in Ontario (for fellow east coasters, that's a city, not the canadian province), and more than a dozen staff. Missing from the PR are any details of the facilities they might have put in place, but that's normal for XO. Does anyone in the Inland Empire know what sort of presence XO has in the area? Are they hooking up buildings with fiber, or leasing circuits from central offices? Just curious.
