Regional Roundup: Mobilitie, DC BLOX, Colt, Hurricane Electric

May 31st, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three expansion projects of US local and regional interest and one new subsea landing item from the southeast:

Mobilitie, which will soon be called Boldyn Networks, will be deploying a 5G event network down in Tennessee. The DAS buildout will provide connectivity at Nashville Yards’ new modern music venue. It’s an 18-acre mixed-use development project encompassing a concert hall, the Grand Hyatt Nashville and the newly renovated train station, restaurants and retail shops, and 7 acres of open space. If all goes well, it will open by the end of 2024.

DC BLOX’s new cable landing station down in Myrtle Beach SC will soon have a 2nd subsea cable coming ashore. Edge Cable Holdings, which is a subsidiary of Meta/Facebook, will be landing the new Anjana cable there, connecting directly across to Santander, Spain. DC BLOX’s facility is set to come online next month, while the Anjana cable is expected to be ready sometime in 2024.

Colt has added another key US data center destination to its network infrastructure. They have expanded into NJFX ,the data center and cable landing station on the New Jersey shore. That will give them direct and diverse access to subsea cables such as Havfrue/AEC-2.  NJFX’s location enables a bypass of the choke points of New York City for subsea destinations in both Europe and South America.

And Hurricane Electric has added two new PoPs to its US footprint in the last few days. Late last week they expanded into the state of Idaho for the first time with a PoP at Involta’s Boise 2 facility. Meanwhile, yesterday they revealed a new PoP at NOCIX Kansas City, giving them 5 in Missouri overall. Both moves will allow HE to offer transit and interconnection to a wider range of enterprise and other customers.
