The metro fiber market in Texas has been quite strong over the last few years, and it's not slowing down. Yesterday, Unite Private Networks announced an expansion into the San Antonio metro area, continuiong to flex their way down from the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area where they have spent the last few years building out network.
UPN's initial buildout in San Antonio will add 210 route miles to their network. It will create a diverse ring around the metro area, leveraging the IH10W and 281N corridors and connecting downtown and the major medical centers.
The buildout will support multiple anchor customers, including a multi-site school district and some fiber-to-the-tower for a major wireless carrier. The investment will enable UPN to take on the enterprise connectivity market in the San Antonio area.
UPN is owned by Cox Communications, Ridgemont Equity Partners, and its management.
