The end of August tends to be a slow time when it comes to big news, but there's still interesting stuff to find if you look hard enough:
In another sign of the growing influence of the cable MSOs in the metro fiber space, Time Warner Cable has expanded its fiber into the Empire State Building in New York City. The company's Business Class unit has been actively building out its fiber throughout the big Apple. I recently found datapoints for several more cable companies, saying that TW Cable has more than 10,000 on-net buildings nationally.
Telx Group (news, filings) has opened the doors for its new SCL2 cloud connection center in Silicon Valley. That gives them three in the Bay area, adding another 32,000 square feet of space within the Vantage datacenter campus.
Global Capacity says it has been seeing unprecedented growth in quote demand and order volume on its One Marketplace Access Exchange. Buy/sell quote volume is up by 189% this summer over last year, with over $1B/month in value.
And in the UK, Sea Fibre Networks is extending is reach beyond its submarine cable between Dublin and the UK. Via partner networks they now can offer diverse connectivity services all the way to both London and Manchester, and they seem to have plans to take that further in the near future.
