January 6th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Two data center expansions, one fiber M&A, and some grant-funded rural fiber:

STACK Infrastructure has some big new plans for northern Virginia. They will be building a 216MW campus in Ashburn in response to hyperscale demand. The campus will support nearly 1M square feet of colo space spread across three buildings and will be powered by 100% renewable energy. STACK already has a campus over in Prince William County where they are building a 72MW second phase, so they certainly see a lot of opportuntiy aead in NVA.

Great Plains Communications has made an inorganic move out in Nebraska. They have completed the acquisition of Wood River Network, adding 10.6 route miles of fiber that supports access for 500 homes and 60 businesses in the town of Wood River. Wood River sits in the central part of the state, an hour or so west of Lincoln just north of I-80. GPC expects to be offering FTTH in the town by the summer of 2022.

Ritter Communications has picked up some grant money from the state of Arkansas. They have been awarded $12.8M in two rural broadband grants from the Arkansas Legislative Council for Crittenden County and south Independence County. Ritter will use the funds to roll out its RightFiber residential services to both areas.

And DC BLOX has officially opened the doors on a new data center. They now have 25,000 square feet of space ready at their new facility in Greenville, South Carolina. The facility will accomodate 400+ cabinets and 3MW of power, with expansion to 54,000 square feet and 18MW of power at full build-out.
