Bandwidth IG touts new metro dark fiber networks in California and Georgia

July 28, 2020
Bandwidth IG says its new metro dark fiber footprints in Northern California and greater Atlanta solve high capacity broadband needs with diversity, speed and scalability.

Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG), a metro dark fiber network provider in northern California and greater Atlanta, quietly entered the market last year and is now serving mission critical data centers, hyperscalers and enterprises with high capacity, dark fiber.

The company says its new network is intentionally placed to ensure minimal overlap with other networks. The high-density cables allow Bandwidth IG to deliver diverse, low-latency, high-count fiber networks at a competitive value.

"We've strategically built new metro dark fiber networks in Silicon Valley and greater Atlanta, two of the most dynamic data center markets in the nation, because we recognize the explosive demand that is building for new, scalable and reliable dark fiber solutions to support the growth of current and future data-intensive enterprises," said Jim Nolte, CEO for Bandwidth IG.

Bandwidth IG's Northern California network spans more than 50 route miles with roughly 89,000 fiber miles and the ability to grow exponentially. It reaches more than 50 data centers, representing more than 520 megawatts of IT load.

For its part, the company's greater Atlanta network has more than 40 newly built route miles and 75,000 fiber miles. The network reaches 16 data centers, representing more than 380 megawatts of IT load.

Both metro networks are 100% underground and populated with high count single-mode fiber cables. The systems are built to meet demand for connectivity today and quickly scale for future needs.

Bandwidth IG supports customers in many major data centers today and plans to rapidly expand to more venues.

"We've developed great relationships with the data center operators in our markets – many of whom are customers as well," added Nolte. "Our focus has been and will continue to be building partnerships that empower digital acceleration for our customers and the communities we serve."
