Atlanta, GA, October 6, 2021 – FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of experience building and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, today announced a record breaking expansion that has reached over 16,000 route miles and 165 on-net data centers connected with newly constructed fiber. FiberLight has long been focused on the State of Texas as it is critical for large data centers, telecommunications providers and businesses to connect with some of the largest hubs in the country, all while providing cross-border connectivity into Mexico.
Recent highlights across Texas include:
- FiberLight completes its fiber expansion in the greater El Paso, Texas market, with a new Point of Presence (PoP) at the MDC El Paso facility.
- FiberLight has recently completed a redundant point-to-point pathway for FIBERTOWN’s colocation and data center services. The new data center in Houston is now online and provides customers with 100 percent uptime.
- FiberLight also expanded connectivity at H5 Data Centers in San Antonio. The expansion supports a low-latency network connecting Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston (DASH), plus Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen, and includes brand new, diverse fiber routes to the US-Mexico border.
Last year FiberLight completed its high-capacity fiber Texas Express Routes as part of an interstate connectivity superhighway within the organization’s existing and expansive Texas fiber footprint. The low-latency network now connects Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston (DASH), plus Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen, and includes brand new, diverse fiber routes to the Mexican border. Building on this route, FiberLight made it a goal of serving the El Paso area as the local community has become a major hub for connecting to the Mexican market. This expansion not only brings new connections for businesses in this area but now provides a fourth border crossing to support terabits of bandwidth from Mexico to Dallas. FiberLight is now able to connect El Paso with Laredo, McAllen, and Brownsville.
Additionally, the company recently completed a project with its strategic partner, FIBERTOWN that includes a high-capacity circuit with a Point-to-Point connection between FIBERTOWN’S Bryan data center with its data center in Houston. The new circuit provides a unique differentiator for FIBERTOWN customers as it diversifies their traffic between data centers and offers a separate route from the other local carriers which brings greater resiliency for customers looking for continuous connectivity and uptime.
“I couldn’t be more proud to see our team continue on its mission of bringing secure, reliable and innovative connectivity across the State of Texas,” said Chris Rabii, Chief Executive Officer at FiberLight. “We have seen first-hand the increased need for diverse pathways and options for businesses that are looking to take advantage of new cloud offerings and provide superior customer service. We’ve been able to assemble a premier roster of partners and customers that we’re proud to serve. We look forward to continuing this expansion across the southwest and into the southeast markets across the United States.”
