With this acquisition, Xtel can enable businesses across this key market with secure, smart telecommunications and cloud solutions that are agile and adaptable to today’s evolving workforce and landscape.
Founded in 1992, GTB is considered one of the pioneers in implementing VoIP (Voice Over IP) technology and is a leading provider of VoIP and UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) to large healthcare providers, law firms, and other verticals throughout the Baltimore-DC-VA region. The company has been endorsed as a “Carrier of Choice” by many business associations.

The addition of GTB strengthens Xtel’s existing client base encompassing healthcare, legal, government and educational organizations. Xtel’s ever-evolving portfolio of advanced telecom, cloud and cybersecurity services includes:
- UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service)
- Wireless Internet 5G/LTE
- DIA (Dedicated Internet Access)
- DDoS mitigation
- SOCaaS (Security Operations Center as a Service)
At the forefront of telecommunications for almost three decades, Xtel is one of the oldest and most established privately held CLECs in the country. The company continually reinvests in its network and customer support infrastructure, recently adding a third data center in the New York City market. Its fiber-optic network is geo-redundant and engineered to be both resilient and scalable, with ample capacity to accommodate growth and sudden spikes in customer utilization. Xtel’s network and data centers are annually recertified to meet the most stringent compliance requirements.
“This acquisition marks a milestone in Xtel’s history as we enter into the Baltimore market and continue to expand our presence to enable businesses of all sizes with the solutions and expertise needed to meet today’s demands,” said Brian Flynn, President of Xtel. “We look forward to delivering the excellent service GTB customers are accustomed to and developing long-term partnerships across the region.”
