I'm on the road again today, but here's a quick roundup of some action among fiber operators in the last day or so:
Zayo this morning announced a new customer for international connectivity. The NYC-based startup Packet has picked Zayo's IP and Ethernet services to connect its New York, California, and Amsterdam locations. Packet is looking to combine the advantages of bare metal, uncongested networks, and containers, and is aiming for a period of high growth.
FirstLight Fiber picked up some additional business in the healthcare vertical. The Derry Medical Center is buying more bandwidth from the operator up in New Hampshire, upgrading its network across locations in Derry, Londonderry, and Windham as well as its voice services.
Netrality says that Consolidated Communications has moved into its Kansas City facility. Consolidated now has a PoP at 1102 Grand, and will now be offering up to 100G connectivity from the meet-me room there to locations on its regional fiber network.
And Interoute yesterday expanded its cloud platform in the Far East. They have launched a new virtual data center zone in the key gateway of Singapore, giving them 16 globally. The new location will complement their other Asian location in Hong Kong.
