WAYNESBORO, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.”
