As long and well travelled as it is, the US/Canadian border has long had only so many fiber routes crossing it. But 123Net now has another one, leveraging a new route built by Bluewater Regional Networks.
Back in January, Bluewater unveiled plans for the new border crossing option between Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan. The route crosses the Blue Water Bridge over the St. Clair River, about an hour northeast of Detroit. The Michigan-based regional provider 123NET has now partnered up with Bluewater to fold that new infrastructure option into its portfolio.
The new route provides a unique, diverse option between Toronto and Chicago that avoids border bottlenecks in Detroit and Buffalo. It also enables Bluewater's Canadian customers a direct link over to the Detroit Internet Exchange, which is housed in 123Net's Southfield facility.
