C3BU Hooks Up With Colo Atl

January 31st, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Atlanta's Colo Atl has some new regional fiber connectivity to report. The Columbia County Community Broadband Utility is moving into its data center at 55 Marietta Street. They'll be taking up some colo space in the facility as well as accessing the Southeast Network Access Point IX for interconnection and related services.

C3BU operates 210 route miles of open-access fiber in Georgia's Columbia County, which lies along the border with South Carolina just outside of Augusta. The network was originally built out as part of a $13.5M BTOP grant back in 2010. These days it has 180 anchor institutions on-net and partners with five service providers to offer connectivity to the enterprise and residential markets.

At Colo Atl they will also be able to interconnect directly with other members of the Fiber Network Alliance, whose footprints span much of the east coast.  Colo Atl's independent interconnection position in Atlanta has attracted more than 90 network operators overall.
