Fiber networks

GST Telecommunications Inc., Vancouver, WA, has completed construction of a seven-mile, all-digital, fiber-optic network in Pleasanton, CA. The Pleasanton network, operated by GST Lightwave, is the initial phase of a 75-mile network for the San Francisco East Bay area, which is scheduled for completion by the third quarter of 1996.

GST Lightwave has also completed a 47-mile fiber-optic network connecting Fresno and Colinga, CA. The initial synchronous optical network, or Sonet, OC-48 link at 2.5 gigabits per second was developed to provide service under a long-term contract with a major interexchange carrier.
