Lumos Networks Powers 17 Location Customized Wide Area Network ("WAN") for DePaul Community Resources

WAYNESBORO, Va.--()--Lumos Networks Corp. (“Lumos Networks” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LMOS), a leading fiber-based provider of data, voice and IP-based telecommunication services in the Mid-Atlantic region, announces the continued strengthening of its relationship with DePaul Community Resources, a provider of mental health and human services in Central and Western Virginia. DePaul Community Resources is headquartered in Roanoke, Va. and provides foster care, adoption, and services for individuals with developmental disabilities. DePaul has been a customer of Lumos Networks since 2002, and over that time, Lumos Networks has customized a Wide Area Network (WAN) Ethernet solution for DePaul’s 17 separate locations.

“Given our expansion efforts, particularly in more remote locations across the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond, an increasingly robust network and increased bandwidth has become paramount in our ability to deliver on our mission of transforming the lives of children, families and adults with unique challenges,” said Amanda Stanley, President & Chief Executive Officer. “The solutions Lumos Networks have provided ensure effective communications for DePaul across our footprint in order to open doors to hope and belonging.”

“Given that DePaul continues to remain in expansion mode, they needed a system that could provide increased bandwidth and improve business efficiencies between their headquarters in Roanoke and remote locations,” said Joseph McCourt, Chief Revenue Officer for Lumos Networks. “A customized wide area network provides a secure, fast and reliable connection for their organization and provides those they serve with a personal connection to the web. We are proud to call DePaul Community Resources a long-standing customer and look forward to growing with them for years to come.”
