DukeNet says it has completed a significant network expansion taking it into new markets across four more southeastern states. They’ve built out metro and regional networks in Birmingham, Huntsville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Nashville, Athens, Atlanta, and Richmond, Virginia, and are planning an expansion up to Ashburn.
DukeNet has been associated almost solely with the Carolinas for so long, it may take a while for their larger footprint to resonate throughout the industry, but it has been clear since the private equity group Alinda injected funding a couple years ago that they would become more aggressive.
So where to next? Perhaps DukeNet should also be considered a potential suitor for FiberLight, whose footprint would be very complementary.
