Granite Telecommunications will use the Cox Business network to provide voice services.

The wholesale agreement will deliver Granite’s competitive local telephone services through Cox’s network. The broadband and cable provider serves more than 6.5 million customers in 18 states. Granite serves multilocation customers and manages nearly 1.8 million voice and data lines.

The companies are growing an existing partnership, according to Granite chief operating officer Rand Currier

“This new service platform enables Granite to continue assisting customers in their growth by offering reliable and cost-effective voice services. This expands our collaboration with Granite to meet and exceed our mutual customers’ expectations.”

Granite signed a wholesale agreement with Spectrum Business in April. The partnership similarly delivers Granite voice services over Spectrum broadband.

Granite recently purchased Epik, a wireless POTS provider. Buying Epik expanded Granite’s list of affordable alternatives to TDM landlines, which incumbent carriers no longer hold in high regard.

The company also recently opened an opportunity for partners to earn commissions on network integration services. As a result, agents can monetize nontraditional technologies like Office 365 and print.
