January 16, 2017 - Baltimore, Maryland – FTS Fiber, a dark fiber provider, announces today that they have signed a new anchor tenant on its key DelMarVa fiber route. FTS Fiber is currently constructing a fiber ring connecting Virginia Beach and Ashburn, VA, traversing the eastern portion of Virginia and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
“Our DelMarVa fiber route is a very unique route which continues to attract new tenants. It not only appeals to various network operators and business sectors but also allows for rural Eastern Shore Counties, like our current partner Kent County, MD, to leverage the nearby network to provide reliable high-speed internet for their businesses and residents. More and more these days we are seeing a push for rural broadband expansion in the U.S., and we are excited to see that FTS’ network can also play an integral part in that initiative along the DelMarVa,” said Brett Hill, Chief Executive Officer of FTS Fiber.
FTS Fiber’s 110-mile, county-wide network in Kent County, MD is still on schedule to be completed by the end of 2017. The entire Delmarva route is scheduled for completion in 2018, which will connect Virginia Beach, VA to Ashburn, VA via the Delmarva Peninsula and Baltimore, MD.
