San Antonio, TX (August 18, 2020) – Unite Private Networks (UPN), a leading provider of high-capacity, fiber-based communication networks is pleased to announce a major network expansion in the San Antonio metro area.
The 210-mile route will create a diverse ring around the metro, traversing IH10W and the 281N corridors, as well as throughout downtown and the major medical centers. Customers will now have access to dark fiber or lit services that are scalable from 100 mbps to 100 gbps, as well as a suite of other products.
The new large-count fiber network will support several anchor customers including a fiber-optic network for a large multi-site school district and fiber to the tower projects for a major wireless carrier.
“UPN already has a significant presence in Texas, and San Antonio is a continuation of our commitment to serve the entire state,” said Clayton Brown, Regional Sales Director at Unite Private Networks. “Our metropolitan optical ethernet (MOE) rings will cover the entire city, are survivable in the event of a fiber cut, and will connect back into our core network. We’re thrilled to extend our network infrastructure into San Antonio and are looking forward to working with the business community.”
“Strong fiber infrastructure is critical to San Antonio’s ever-growing cyber, tech, bioscience, and manufacturing sectors. We’re excited to welcome Unite Private Networks into our business community as both a key part of our ecosystem, and also as new corporate citizens,” said Sean Attwood, vice president of tech development for the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation.
