Fibertech completes phase of Detroit area network expansion

Rochester Business Journal
September 4, 2014

Fibertech Networks LLC, a fiber-optic broadband provider, has completed its initial phase of building out more than 800 miles of fiber-optic infrastructure in Southeastern Michigan.

The company has completed construction on 100 miles of network in two, self-healing ring configurations, and is carrying broadband traffic in the metro Detroit area.

The entire core network is expected to be completed by third quarter 2015.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to join business leaders, politicians and others who are investing in Southeast Michigan’s infrastructure,” said Michael Hurley, Fibertech vice president of sales and marketing. “We have already hired initial staff to help construct and sell services to area businesses over the network, and expect to add a few more local employees by year’s end.”

Last week, Fibertech Networks made the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies nationwide. It ranked No 3,719.

The dark fiber and optical broadband services provider employs roughly 280 employees, with some 160 of them in Rochester.
