Kansas City, MO (March 16, 2016) – Unite Private Networks (UPN), a leading provider of high-capacity, fiber-based communication networks is pleased to announce a recent network expansion in Grand Junction, CO.
UPN’s fiber network extends throughout the greater Grand Junction area, including Loma, Fruita, Appleton, Fruitvale, Clifton, and Palisade. Initial customers benefiting from the new network include several local businesses, a major wireless carrier, and the Mesa County Valley School District 51, who will be receiving 10 Gigabit connectivity to all 45 school sites.
“School districts, like all modern organizations, rely heavily on the transmit capacity of their data networks,” said Randy C.
