DENVER-Locally based Rhythms NetConnections Inc. is forming a strategic alliance with the newly formed Firetap Communications to provide DSL-based, high-speed Internet access to Firetap’s client roster that includes real estate professionals.

Rhythms is a broadband services provider while Firetap is a new technology venture between Inc. and the National Association of Realtors. The Denver-based Firetap will provide assorted customized B2B broadband and telephony services to the real estate industry as well as other home-related markets, such as lenders, residential users, builders and multi-listing services.
