I have completed two more pages of links to metro fiber maps covering the Midwest. I split the region into the Rust Belt and the Great Plains, neither of which includes the Chicago Metro Area which already had its own page. The Rust Belt has quite a bit of competitive fiber across a wide selection of metro areas, whereas the Great Plains cover a very large geographical area but with comparatively little. I don’t have any maps at all for the Dakotas yet for example. The usual national suspects are of course present in each area, and generally in the same metro areas.
Notable in this update in particular is the presence of metro fiber maps from Intellifiber, which has now published maps in Google Earth’s KMZ format across its footprint. Since beginning to function independently from the rest of CavTel, Intellifiber has been increasing its profile and it’s nice to finally get a better glimpse into those assets. I have added their links to the NY, PA, and MD/DE/DC pages as well.
Remaining on the to-do list: the Gulf Coast, the Carolinas and the rest of Virginia, Appalachia, and the Rockies.
