Backhaul services provider PEG Bandwidth, LLC says it has signed a deal with “a large wireless carrier” it declined to name for the supply of mobile backhaul services. The carrier, which PEG Bandwidth described as operating “one of the nation’s largest 4G networks,” will use PEG’s services to support market growth.

The wireless carrier is an existing PEG Bandwidth customer. The new agreement will see PEG Bandwidth provide Ethernet backhaul infrastructure to an additional 473 sites throughout Texas, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. The contract will bring the number of cell sites PEG supports for this customer to more than 700.

The infrastructure deployment necessary to support the new requirements will add more than 1900 route miles to the mobile backhaul services provider’s fiber-optic network. The new fiber cables will expand PEG’s total fiber network to more than 13,000 route miles across 18 states. PEG Bandwidth offers its Ethernet backhaul services via a combination of new fiber builds, available dark fiber, partner fiber networks, and licensed, point-to-point microwave.

“This agreement is another example of PEG Bandwidth’s dedication to creating solutions for our customers’ toughest issues,” states Rich Ruben, CEO at PEG Bandwidth. “We are excited to broaden our partnership with our wireless carrier customers as we approach our 3,000th site under contract.”
