“We continue to see a strong demand for dark fiber in our carrier market,” said Bob Evenson, 123Net’s Carrier Relations Manager. “This is another example of the 123Net team coming together to provide a unique solution for carriers .”
The current project is phase two of an expansive eastern Michigan buildout the two providers are working on. The first phase is already providing many enterprises in Troy with high-bandwidth Internet connectivity.
“We were both extremely pleased with the results of the first phase of this project,” said Chuck Irvin, 123Net’s Director of Network Development. “We will continue to invest the time, effort and resources needed to make 123Net the best option for custom dark fiber solutions in Michigan.”
