Packets lands deal

The Spokesman-Review

World Wide Packets, based in Spokane Valley, announced Friday it has signed a large contract with ntlInc., the second-largest broadband carrier in the United Kingdom.

World Wide Packets Vice President Barry Kantner said he was not free to divulge the terms of the deal. “It’s evolving,” he said, noting that ntl plans to continue buying products from World Wide Packets over time as it expands and upgrades its services across England.

Kantner said ntl’s intention is to use World Wide Packets’ products primarily for expanded services to large business and government customers.
