We are a fiber solutions provider with a 25-year history of owning and maintaining network infrastructure across the country. We work closely with our clients to build solutions that allow them to run their organizations today, while setting the stage for tomorrow’s most transformative innovations. Our dense metro fiber footprint extends across the country and includes 25,000+ on-net buildings and over 900 connected data centers. With our recent acquisition of eight regional fiber providers, including Sunesys, Fibernet Direct, Wilcon, and Lightower, we’ve strengthened our commitment to fiber even further. And as part of Crown Castle, we’re an S&P 500 company that is dedicated to long-term ownership and operation of communications infrastructure. This diverse portfolio includes over 40,000 cell towers, approximately 65,000 small cell nodes on air or under contract, and approximately 65,000 route miles of fiber—giving our customers access to a unique and comprehensive network offering.

We are a stable S&P 500 company who has been committed to the long-term ownership and maintenance of network assets for over 25 years. Unlike some companies that lease their fiber, we own our network—making us directly invested in their integrity and allowing us to provide faster response times and issue resolution. Before building your network, we take the time to understand your needs and deliver a solution that’s right for you. Each of your needs are carefully considered and calculated to provide a solution that meets all of your security and bandwidth requirements well into the future. After your network is up and running, our local service teams offer personalized on-the-ground service you can rely on. And our fully staffed Network Operations Center (NOC) monitors your network around-the-clock so we can proactively respond to changing circumstances and provide you with unmatched reliability and peace of mind.
While the name of the company you do business with has changed, our commitment to you and your needs remains the same. We will continue to deliver the highest levels of reliability, personalized service and custom solutions you have come to expect. In addition, now that we are a part of Crown Castle, you get the peace of mind that comes with working with a stable S&P 500 company that has an established history of long-term ownership of network assets—including towers, small cells, and approximately 65,000 route miles of fiber.
We are dedicated to supporting our customers and ensuring that your network is always functioning at its peak performance. Our fully staffed Network Operations Center (NOC) is available 24 hours a day and can be contacted at 1-855-91-FIBER. They monitor your network around-the-clock, and will provide immediate support in the case of an outage.
We own approximately 65,000 route miles of fiber that stretch across the United States and into most major metropolitan areas. You can explore our map, but take note that we are growing quickly, and even if we aren’t in your area yet, we may be soon. Contact a sales representative to learn which solutions may be available where your organization operates.
The difference between a private network and the public internet can be compared to driving on your own private road versus a busy interstate. With the public internet, your data is less secure and is competing with other traffic that can significantly slow you down. But with a dedicated private connection—whether through Dark Fiber or Private Networks—your data never passes through the public cloud. Essentially, you get a higher level of security and full control of your network’s speed and capacity.
