Manage & Control Your Own Network

Unlimited Scale Through 123NET’s Dark Fiber Network


123NET’s Dark Fiber provides limitless capacity while providing maximum control and flexibility over your network. This service eliminates the time-consuming process of designing, permitting, and constructing your own expensive fiber infrastructure between multiple office locations while removing dependencies on the incumbent carrier.


Dark fiber provides a great cost structure for higher bandwidth needs when compared to traditional internet payment approaches. 123NET’s Dark Fiber allows you to increase network speed without incurring additional monthly fees. This solution becomes a better option for larger or expanding businesses that need more than 1 Gbps connectivity.


Dark Fiber networks can be designed in rings, point-to-point, or point-to-multipoint configurations with single lateral or diverse routes. Enterprises who utilize these networks can expect swift speeds and increased security over standard cable networks.

Operational Control

With a dark fiber network, organizations can connect their equipment to the fiber and control the network end-to-end with virtually unlimited bandwidth.

Increased Performance

Dark fiber provides the most direct and efficient path from end to end compared to traditional commercial internet services that are built with many stops between point A and B.

Maximize Security

Secure data and meet industry regulations with a completely private and protected network.


123NET’S Dark Fiber can provide the network infrastructure that your organization needs to support critical applications. This service supports many configurations, services and applications (Ethernet, SONET or DWDM).
