High Speed Access (HSA), a cable modem-based broadband Internet service provider, said it has 176,000 customers, an increase of 26 percent from 140,000 subscribers at the end of March. HSA, which is backed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, has changed its business model in recent months, something the company believes helped its bottom line. The company will report quarterly financial results Aug. 9.
NorthPoint Communications, a wholesale provider of high-speed digital subscriber lines (DSL), and High Speed Access (HSA), a cable modem service provider primarily serving rural markets, have signed a strategic partnership. HSA will begin offering NorthPoint DSL later this year as an alternative access technology for small- and medium-sized businesses not served by cable networks.
