US-based dark optical fiber network provider, Light Source Communications will build a new intercity dark optical fiber route in Georgia. The project is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2017. The new fiber optic route, which is designed to have a length of around 320 kilometers will connect Atlanta and Augusta and pass through Athens.
The network construction on the new fiber optic route is expected to be completed in 2018. The new route will include eight neutral colocation sites to provide space and power. Once the new route is completed, Light Source Communications will have completed long haul dark fiber available in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma and now Georgia. The route enables unlimited high-quality bandwidth and communication infrastructure services with dedicated high-capacity, low-latency dark fiber optic cable for customers with critical applications and data centers in these markets. The network will be underground, contain multiple conduits, and will be diverse from other existing routes.
In a blog article published at the company’s site, the CEO, Debra Freitas stated that the Light Source Communications was pleased to offer this ultra-fiber route to provide its customers a superior unlimited fiber option in the southeast.
