I'm running a bit late today, but here's a quick look at a few items I didn't get to last week that I probably should have:
Mammoth Networks has found another hard to reach spot up in the Rockies and brought it some new bandwidth options. They've expanded their foothold in CenturyLink-held territory up in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The town has put in a carrier-neutral location, from which Mammoth is hooking up the school district, the city, and the county. Mammoth also has another connection coming into the area from the west from EAGLE-Net.
A state and a half to the east, Unite Private Networks won another WAN contract with a Nebraska school district. Grand Island has signed on for a multi-year agreement providing 10Gbps or more to each district site. The network should be up and running by July 1 of this year.
TDS Telecom is taking the Gigabit plunge up in New Hampshire. With some help from Calix, they're rolling out a 1Gbps GPON network to residential customers in the town of Hollis, which lies just west of Nashua. TDS is a company I probably should spend a bit more time looking at.
And in northern Virginia, Apptix is expanding its footprint with a little help from Data Foundry. They'll be putting some cloud infrastructure into the Austin based data center operator's new Ashburn facility. Apptix had already been in Data Foundry's flagship Austin facility.
