With an extensive fiber optic network and knowledgeable service team in place, we make it easy for you to meet your needs through a dark fiber lease agreement.

Is dark fiber right for you?

Our dark fiber customers typically value:

  • Dedicated, secure routing
  • Service neutrality
  • Uncapped connection speeds (only limited by the optical properties)
  • The ability to utilize multiplexing techniques
  • Opportunities to limit up-front construction costs
