Metro Roundup: TPx, FastWyre, INDATEL, MTA, CityFibre

March 5th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Some new leadership, a couple of rollout updates, and a new partnership:

TPx has itself a new Chief Executive Officer. The managed services provider has appointed Shaun Andrews as its next CEO. Retiring CEO Rick Mace will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors. Andrews, who had been EVP and CMO over at Lumen, will hit the ground running by targetting revenue growth opportunities at TPx.

FastWyre has offered an update on its buildouts in the state of Louisiana. The company says it has now invested $65M in the region, endeavoring to bring 2Gbps with a path to 10Gbps to Moss Bluff, Cameron Parish, Carlyss, DeRidder, Elizabeth, Grand Lake, Leesville, Oakdale, Pitkin, Sugartown and Westlake.

INDATEL has a new member way up north. Matanuska Telecom Association (MTA) has become the first fiber operator in Alaska to join INDATEL’s ranks, giving it access to a national ecosystem of alternative fiber providers. MTA’s reach covers some 10,000 square miles, from its base in Palmer to both Anchorage and Fairbanks.

And CityFibre continues to roll out FTTH across parts of the UK. This week the company turned up access to some 100K residents in Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole. The three adjacent cities are on the southern coast of the UK and are a popular coastal resort area to the southwest of London. Residents and businesses there can now get up to 2Gbps from any of the various partners working with CityFibre.
