OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Pac-West Telecomm, Inc., a leading wholesale communications provider and strategic enabler for carriers and service providers, announced today that it has again significantly expanded its footprint for voice origination services.  

Pac-West's Origination (Dial Access) service offers carriers and service providers access to local telephone numbers and connectivity to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) across one of the largest networks in the United States.  With competitive unmetered session pricing and full network access via a convenient single point of interconnection, carriers and service providers benefit from reliable access to their voice and data services from anywhere in the Pac-West footprint via a local call.

"This further underscores our commitment to providing service wherever our customers need it," said Robert H.
