"NEF was selected based on their expertise, relationships, and robust technology tools, including FiberLocator, a network intelligence and mapping software platform encompassing hundreds of high-capacity network providers,” states Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. "We look forward to this partnership as we move through the design completion and execution stage of customer orders.”

The first phase of the Allied Fiber system will provide a combined 744 dark fibers and nineteen 1000+ square foot colocation facilities.
