FiberLight Completes Texan DASH

April 26th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

The Southeastern fiber builder and operator FiberLight has completed another big piece of its Texas buildout project. Earlier this week the company introduced their new regional fiber network connecting the largest metro areas in the eastern part of the state, turning it up in just 73 days. 

TX_LH_Corp1They call it ‘DASH’ for the Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston parts, a.k.a. the Texas Triangle. However, FiberLight’s buildout also throws in the southern loop of Laredo, McAllen, and Corpus Christi which get substantially less attention. The network is built out to support 176x100Gbps using ROADMs from Fujitsu.

Fiberlight has had a substantial presence in the Texas Triangle region for years, but last year announced a 3,000 route mile buildout moving into West and Central Texas.  They then expanded that further both in breadth and depth, and when complete now plan to have some 9,500 Texan fiber route miles in all.

FiberLight is still on my ‘most likely to get bought by Zayo someday’ list, with their Texas and Florida footprints being the main reasons why.
