ALPHARETTA, GA – FiberLight, LLC, one of the nation’s leading providers of mission critical, high performance fiber optic networks, announced today the company has begun construction on a new super metro and regional fiber infrastructure through Western Texas. The new network includes the cities of San Angelo, Odessa, Midland, Abilene, Lubbock and Amarillo and will be interconnected with FiberLight’s existing regional Texas long haul network as well as its metro assets in Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio. The project includes a 250-route mile expansion of FiberLight’s existing Dallas metro fiber infrastructure, further extending its leading competitive fiber backbone in the market.
“As one of the largest fiber expansion efforts in the country, FiberLight has undertaken a project that will bring new fiber infrastructure throughout West Texas, extending over 3,000 route miles and being lit by new state-of-the-art optical transport equipment for the delivery of high speed Ethernet connectivity. FiberLight’s initial focus will be to provide needed high speed Ethernet connectivity over its fiber to large enterprise, government and carriers (including wireless providers) throughout the region,” said Michael P. Miller, FiberLight’s CEO and Founder.
“Investing in new fiber infrastructure with projects that have good long-term returns, great growth prospects and a lack of current infrastructure is what FiberLight has done for the past decade, and this marquee project will continue that strong track record of success we have demonstrated in the market. The initial project will connect over 275 wireless towers and over 100 buildings, accelerating our growth once again.,” said FiberLight Chief Development Officer Ron Kormos. His team will bring their 30-year plus track record of building great fiber networks to deliver for FiberLight again and ensure the build is done on time and with the high quality for which FiberLight is known.
FiberLight plans to have construction crews working continuously in West Texas for the next 18 months and will be working with local economic development organizations, municipalities and key customers to accelerate the development potential of this major investment in new fiber optic infrastructure.
“FiberLight introduced an innovative product strategy to secure this new build out in West Texas, which is our largest to date. The strategy first developed in 2011 by FiberLight drives value to customers through enhanced scalability and control, improving the cost of bandwidth including incremental costs and creates the operating platform to drive revenue and product capabilities for our clients, not available through other traditional connectivity options. This project is a testament to that strategy, and we are excited to see the positive impact on FiberLight and for our clients.” said Ben Edmond, President of Sales & Marketing for FiberLight.
