The MidAtlantic may soon have another connectivity option. Harbor Link announced yesterday that it has broken ground on new infrastructure connecting Baltimore with northern Virginia. The company hopes to make dark fiber more easily available in the region.
The new infrastructure will include 60 route miles of new conduit across Maryland to the Washington DC metro area via diverse routes along the 95 and 97 corridors. Along the path between Baltimore and Northern Virginia they will have 300 access points, and the latency will be under 1ms between endpoints.
Lots of data traverses this area of course, but Harbor Link feels there are few options for networks to access dark fiber. If all goes well, the new infrastructure will be ready for lease in about one year in Q1 of 2023. Harbor Link has plans to follow up this buildout with other routes reaching into Delaware and other parts of Virginia.
