Three data center projects and two FTTx expansions:

Prime Data Centers has unveiled plans for a new facility in Silicon Valley. They are building a new 4-story, 9MW, 119,000 square foot facility in Santa Clara, home to lower energy prices than other Bay Area markets. The project will be at 1231 Comstock, just down the street from their other facility at 1111 Comstock. It will be a while yet before it’s ready though, they plan to begin construction in the second half of 2023.

T5 Data Centers is taking aim at Augusta, Georgia in a big way. They announced development plans for a 140-acre, 200MW data center campus in the city. The site is adjacent to Fort Gordon and the US Army’s Cyber Command HQ, and T5 hopes to target the federal hyperscale marketplace for advanced cybersecurity in the area.

Mission Critical Facilities International has announced the deployment of a modular edge data center in Midland, Texas. BBT has moved into the facility, which is the first in the oil and gas region known as the Permian Basin out in West Texas and eastern New Mexico. The initial deployment features 1MW of power and 88 racks, with potential expansion to 5 times that. BBT is working with MCFI for another edge location as well.

Vyve is expanding its business fiber services to 25 new markets. The expansion targets a swath of third and fourth tier cities with multiple in the Carolinas, Oklahoma, California, Georgia, and Texas. Vyve will be offering 10Gbps access as well as higher level services to businesses and enteprises across that footprint.

And Fidium Fiber is officially rolling out in three New Hampshire markets. The newly launched brand from Consolidated Communications is seeking to unify and upgrade the consumer FTTH experience across the company’s footprint. They are now offering 1Gbps to 55,000 homes in Manchester, Milford, and Nashua. They have another 56K homes planned for early this year as they expand through Consolidated’s footprint in northern New England.
