FiberLight is constructing an additional super metro and regional fiber infrastructure through central and eastern Texas. The network includes the cities of Austin, San Antonio, Schertz, Corpus Christi, Waco, Laredo and many others for a total of 64 cities. These cities will be interconnected with FiberLight’s existing regional assets and connecting another build that’s more than 50 percent complete in the western part of Texas. The total Texas expansion project, coupled with existing fiber assets, will result in FiberLight owning just over 9,000 route miles in Texas.
“We at FiberLight continue to focus our efforts around three growth areas: wholesale, tower backhaul and enterprise. This large win is in the tower backhaul space, which will catapult our wholesale and enterprise initiatives in Texas,” said Michael P. Miller, FiberLight’s CEO and founder, in a company release.
“This is an enormous boost to the entire state of Texas as we install high-fiber-count cables. This will allow FiberLight to service all large and small businesses, government, educational institutions and carriers for many years to come. This will also immediately improve LTE rollouts throughout the state,” said Texas native and FiberLight Chief Development Officer Ron Kormos, in a company statement.
