Fiber Bytes: Windstream, Digital Crossroad, Vivacity, Neos, CityFibre

August 5th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Three fiber expansion projects in three different geographies to keep up with:

Windstream Wholesale has added a bit more fiber to its network up in the Pacific Northwest. Building upon the carrier’s overall fiber expansion on the west coast over the last few years, Windstream has connected the Hillsboro, Oregon cable landing station to its network. Windstream’s network in Hillsboro’s ‘Silicon Forest’ reaches the data centers of Digital Realty, Flexential, Stack, EdgeConneX, and QTS.  Hillsboro’s cable landing station brings ashore a number of key subsea cables.

Digital Crossroad and Vivacity Networks are teaming up for a new fiber option out in Indiana. Vivacity will be investing in the activation of a fiber conduit along the Indiana Toll Road, which might also be known as I-90 and stretches 156 miles from Illinois to Ohio, and operate it on a carrier neutral, wholesale basis. It also happens to pass right past the front doors of Digital Crossroad’s recently launched facility in Hammond IN. Digital Crossroad will complete the connection onward to 350 East Cermack in Chicago.

And over in the UK, Neos Networks has renewed and expanded its partnership wtih CityFibre, adding another nine cities to the mix. They plan to expand into Cambridge, Cheltenham, Coventry, Derby, Gloucester, Huddersfield, Peterborough, Southend, and Swindon, putting them in 24 CityFibre-enabled cities nationwide. Neos builds upon CityFibre’s metro buildouts to offer connectivity to the enterprise and public sector markets.
