APRIL 23, 2007 -- Fibertech has completed a 15-mile diverse route "open-access" network in Montgomery County, MD, that allows numerous communications and Internet companies to offer facilities-based services.

APRIL 23, 2007 -- Fibertech Networks LLC (search for FiberTech), provider of metropolitan bandwidth services in mid-size cities, today announced the completion of its initial 15-mile fiber-optic network ring located in and around Montgomery County, MD. The company plans to quickly expand the network and add sales and support staff in Maryland to grow its infrastructure business in the area. Montgomery County becomes Fibertech's 21st market in service.

"Montgomery County welcomes 'smart companies' like Fibertech Networks and the smart capabilities they bring to our expanding I-270 Technology Corridor," says Pradeep Ganguly, Ph.D., director of the Montgomery County Department of Economic Development. "We look forward to Fibertech's increased presence and growth in services and job creation in Montgomery County."

Fibertech has completed a diverse route, "open-access" network allowing for numerous communications and Internet companies to offer facilities-based services. Carriers can lease strands of fiber on the network to expand their local presence and offer true facilities-based services.

In addition to communications carriers, Fibertech offers network services to education, healthcare, financial, government, and other large businesses looking to manage their own network facilities and meet demands for data and broadband capacity. Fibertech extends its fiber-optic network directly into business locations, allowing them to internally deploy a range of advanced telecommunications applications.

"Montgomery County is one of the fastest growing suburban areas in the Mid-Atlantic. It's quickly become an economic focal point and major hub for government agencies outside of the Washington, DC area," notes John K. Purcell, president and CEO of Fibertech Networks. "We're thrilled to be able to offer area businesses the unlimited bandwidth and cost efficiencies of dark fiber connections directly into their facilities."
