NOVEMBER 23, 2009 -- With the recent on-net extension to eight high-profile casino and gaming business locations, American Fiber Systems (AFS) says it has become the most ubiquitous competitive access provider in Las Vegas.

AFS's optical fiber network provides connectivity for the gaming industry, large municipalities, and businesses with high-bandwidth needs, and is currently responsible for the majority of gaming revenue on and off the Strip, according to the carrier. AFS's adds that the Las Vegas network also provides local access to all major long haul carriers, and for those who require access to all carrier hotels such as Switch's SuperNAP.

The carrier's intercity long-haul network ring connects Las Vegas with Reno, Salt Lake City, UT, and Boise, ID. A significant portion of the fiber network is located in "Power Zones," which are underground and above-ground areas designed to take advantage of the lowest physical routes and highest steel transmission poles.

"Our network has been operational since 2001 and has experienced consistent growth each year," said Rich Coyle, senior vice president, operations, AFS. "It was carefully designed and constructed as a future-proofed network to accommodate the growth of our existing customers, as well as the addition of sizable business parks, law firms, carriers, and utilities. We are honored to be the go-to provider for Las Vegas enterprises with large bandwidth needs, and we treat our role in their success with critical importance."
