Dark fiber is a cost effective option to expand fast, dependable Internet services.
Traditional service providers seeking to expand their customer footprint are leasing dark fiber lines rather than laying new fiber. This is an attractive, cost-effective option rather than constructing new fiber in often congested urban centers. Additionally, the need for expanded in-home service is rising with more connectivity requirements in suburban and rural areas where new installation is difficult and expensive. Dark fiber is the solution leveraging existing infrastructure or conduits to quickly light and deploy new service areas.
Open Access networks enable a variety of telecommunication providers to lease dark fiber to service more customers, fostering more innovation and lowering costs.
