Fibertech Networks completes Ohio network expansion

Rochester Business Journal
February 18, 2014

Fibertech Networks LLC, a fiber-optic broadband provider, has completed a network expansion project covering more than 1,000 new route miles in Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo, Ohio.

“High-speed data and bandwidth demand nearly doubles every year, as evidenced by the continued growth of wireless, mobile, cloud computing and large data transmission and storage,” said John Purcell, chairman and CEO, in a statement. “Fibertech’s newly deployed fiber backbones offer an alternative to the previously available networks in place.”

The company offers both dark fiber and optical broadband services to businesses. Since its recent expansion, the company has added contracts to lease capacity and services to local businesses, including a new order to build 200 miles of fiber throughout Ohio.

“As information technology and networking needs continue to grow, it’s pivotal for metro areas to have alternative fiber infrastructures for diversity options,” said Michael Hurley, vice president of sales and marketing. “We expect our investment in Ohio will provide increased facilities-based telecommunications competition and help make the communities we serve a more attractive environment for business through this significant private investment in broadband infrastructure.”
