Ashburn, VA – 7/25/2019 – Dark Fiber and Infrastructure, LLC (DF&I) has closed a financing round with Cityfront Partners, LLC. The new facility is a combination of debt and equity, all of which will be used to accelerate construction of the DF&I Northern, VA and MD Network Footprint. Having recently completed a Twenty-two conduit Ashburn Loop through Northern Virginia’s “Data Center Alley”, the Company is aggressively moving northeast to facilitate access between the existing dark fiber network operators and customers in MD and DF&I’s unique Potomac River Crossing providing diversity and dramatic latency reduction between MD and Ashburn, VA. “We are thrilled to have found a financial partner with experience in this space and confidence in the vision DF&I has for hyperscale dark fiber and dedicated conduit networks,” said Co-Founder and Co-CEO, John Schmitt. “Where we have infrastructure, DF&I currently has the largest open access network available for sale or lease in the region and we are going to be disruptive wherever we go. We are going to remain the most aggressive provider of IRU contracted assets and use this funding to become the most aggressive provider of leased conduit and dark fiber where we operate. There is a better way to buy and lease network infrastructure than what the market currently offers. That way is with DF&I.”
Dark Fiber and Infrastructure is a pure play wholesale provider of dark fiber and conduit networks to Carriers and Enterprise Customers alike and is a registered CLEC in multiple markets. The company was founded in 2017 and focuses on facilitating hyper scale access to key peering markets such as Ashburn, VA.
