A New Milestone: 2,500 Fiber-Lit Commercial Buildings
On October 26, 2021, 123NET, Michigan’s largest local fiber internet provider, announced a significant achievement. The company completed high-speed fiber connections into 2,500 commercial buildings in the state. This milestone was reached six months after the company celebrated 2,000 fiber-lit buildings.
The Growth of 123NET
123NET continues to invest heavily in its network infrastructure to help achieve its goal of making Michigan “the best-connected state.” The company has been aggressively connecting buildings with an average growth rate of 51% per year over the past five years. Remarkably, the company continually connects two to three buildings per day.
A Word from the Director of Network Development and Sales
“Reaching 2,500 fiber lit buildings is a major milestone and one that could not be done without the hardworking teams within 123NET,” said Chuck Irvin, 123NET’s Director of Network Development and Sales. “I would also like to thank our customers for continuing to choose 123NET for their connectivity needs. We are grateful for the opportunity to expand the network into our local communities, and together we will continue to make Michigan the best connected.”
The Capacity of 123NET Fiber
123NET fiber offers massive amounts of capacity, up to 400 gigabits per second. Businesses that are interested in fiber connectivity are encouraged to review 123NET’s Network Map. The closer a business is to 123NET’s existing fiber, the easier, and more affordable it is to connect. 123NET has extensive fiber hubs in Southeastern Michigan, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Jackson, Flint, Port Huron, and Kalamazoo.
In conclusion, 123NET’s achievement of lighting 2,500 commercial buildings with fiber is a testament to its commitment to providing superior internet services. Their continued growth and expansion are set to make them a leading player in the connectivity landscape.
