JANUARY 24, 2007 -- D&E Communications Inc., an integrated communications provider in eastern and central Pennsylvania, has purchased a 26-mi fiber-optic network and contracts to provide Gigabit Ethernet Service to two school districts in central Pennsylvania from Access Fiber Solutions Inc., a subsidiary of Harrisburg-based Brinjac Engineering Inc.

The acquisition of the fiber network serving the West Shore School District and the Middletown Area School District expands D&E's facilities-owned footprint in the greater Harrisburg market, say D&E representatives.

"We are thrilled to be able to serve the students and staffs of these two outstanding school districts," asserts Albert H. Kramer, D&E's senior vice president of operations. "We will now be able to seek additional customers in this market served solely on our own network," he says.

"We are pleased to announce the transfer of a telecommunications fiber-optic network to D&E Communications," adds Michael G. Starner, president of AFS. "We are extremely proud of the high-speed network that was built over the last few years [to] serve the educational needs of these two school districts. And [we] are pleased to be completing this phase of our business plan by transferring this network to D&E Communications, another first-class central PA company," he says.
