Fibertech Networks, LLC, a builder and operator of metro-area dark fiber networks within mid-size U.S. cities, announced the completion of dark fiber-optic networks in the central business district and other suburban areas of Buffalo, NY. The network is an "open-access" facility, enabling telecommunications, utility and Internet companies the ability to offer facilities-based services to customers in Buffalo.

Fibertech's metro-area network rings are constructed along strategic routes, passing key corporate centers, municipalities, and the major switching centers located within each of its planned cities. The extension of the Company's network to Buffalo enhances its ability to provide high-capacity, low-cost connectivity to the area.

In addition to Buffalo, Fibertech has completed network construction in Syracuse, Rochester and Albany, NY. Fibertech is also currently designing and building networks in Indianapolis, IN; Columbus, Ohio; Providence, RI; Pittsburgh, PA; Milwaukee, WI; Hartford and New Haven, CT; and Worcester and Springfield, MA, with engineering work progressing in 10 additional cities. Ultimately, Fibertech plans to build metro-area fiber-optic networks in more than 40 mid-size U.S. cities.
