Michigan’s premier business network and internet services provider 123NET, has teamed up with a non-profit organization to expand its high-speed fiber footprint in Detroit along the M-1 Rail. The 3.3 mile stretch of 144 count fiber spanning from the Campus Martius to the Fisher Building the latest among many significant investments by the organization to help improve Detroit’s network infrastructure.
The expansion runs alongside the full length of the newly opened QLine, supporting growth for Detroit businesses down the Woodward corridor. The high-capacity fiber will improve business connectivity and allow customers to seamlessly transfer large files and applications in seconds, utilizing nearly unlimited bandwidth. It is also more versatile than other services, with quick and easily adjusted scalability.
Detroit businesses will benefit from the nearly constant uptime that the service offers. Reliable, high-speed internet services are essential for any organization that requires high-capacity data transport, and fiber optics is the only solution.
123NET also offers fixed wireless, business phone (VoIP) and the area’s largest data centers, making it a one stop shop for telecommunication services. Over a thousand Metro Detroit customers and more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies trust 123NET as their backbone for business.
“We are continuing to provide services that other organizations cannot offer,” said Dan Irvin, CEO at 123NET. “For over 20 years, our diverse team of engineers and problem solvers have and will continue to invest in Michigan’s infrastructure. Our combination of local expertise and resources gives us a rare advantage where we can provide agile support and cost-effective solutions for businesses in Metro Detroit and throughout Michigan.”
It will give businesses another incentive to stay in Detroit. With continued improvements to network infrastructure, the foundation is being laid to make Detroit one of most important tech cities in the Midwest.
“Connecting buildings directly to fiber will provide the fastest and most reliable internet connection on the market,” said Chuck Irvin, Director of Network Development at 123NET. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide growing organizations in Detroit with this service. This project makes Detroit more inviting for global enterprises looking to invest in the city.”
This expansion, along with existing infrastructure that 123NET has built in Detroit over the last 15 years, will help businesses connect to new markets across Michigan. The organization is responsible for more than 3,500 miles of fiber throughout Michigan and that number is growing 150 to 200 miles every year. 123NET is a Michigan-based company, constantly expanding its network presence throughout Michigan using local designers, engineers and laborers.
With exciting projects like the M-1 Rail expansion and the Detroit Internet Exchange in the works, Detroit is on pace to become one of the best-connected areas in the country. 123NET will continue to partner with organizations that strive to bring the best technological resources to Detroit’s infrastructure to accomplish this.
