Metro Fiber Stats Update, July 2013

July 10th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

Ok, at long last I have updated my metro fiber and on-net buildings statistics.  There is a bit more data out there that may roll in in the next few weeks, but that’s always the case.  In the meantime, you can check out the full list in the usual location or take a look at the abbreviated update below.

Obviously the ILECs aren’t here and while I have some data for the cable MSOs it has little granularity.  I’ve included the increment since my last update, but please note that sometimes the update interval is longer for the actual data than between my own updates.  Hence, it’s not a footrace here, just a raw indication of where things have been happening in the past year or two:

Those without updated data either aren’t focusing on building additions or in some cases aren’t talking about it yet.  As always, if anybody has data for networks missing from this list, please send it along!
