November 18th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A bit of M&A, some metro fiber, some interconnection, and a data center build:

Archtop Fiber has made an inorganic move in support of its expansion along the Hudson River in upstate New York. They have acquired GTel, an ISP based in Germantown NY that serves 5 communities on the east shore of the river. Archtop has plans to build out fiber to homes and businesses throughout the region, and is backed by Post Road Group.

LS Networks has plans to expand its footprint in Corvallis, Oregon. They will be building out fiber to reach another 1,700 businesses in the area. It’s another piece of their broader expansion in markets across the state. LS Networks expects to be able to serve the new areas in the spring of 2023.

Cologix has been busy filling out its portfolio, and yesterday launched the Cologix Access Marketplace in two more regions. Their New Jersey and Silicon Valley data centers will now offer self service interconnection, giving Cologix 11 markets enabled with the technology. The portal enables customers to choose from a wide range of interconnection options with other networks and especially cloud providers.

And Prime Data Centers has officially broken ground on its new Chicago metro area campus. They plan to spend $1B to build out the location at 1600 East Higgens Road in Elk Grove Village. At full buildout, the location will deliver 7500 square feet and 175MW of capacity. The first location will offer 384,000 square feet and 72MW of capacity.
