MARCH 3, 2010 -- American Fiber Systems (AFS) says it has completed an upgrade of its high-speed network that interconnects metro regions of Las Vegas, Reno, Salt Lake City, and Boise. The inter-city ring supports long-haul data transport between the four cities, and provides high-bandwidth businesses with faster connectivity, optimal redundancy, expanded capacity, and greater capability for growing business needs, such as web conferencing and online meetings, AFS asserts.

The upgraded network ring consists of 18,720 fiber miles with Ethernet speeds from 2.5 Gbps to 10 Gbps. It is the only inter-city long-haul connection between Las Vegas, Boise, Reno, and Salt Lake City, says AFS.

"Our western region inter-city network first launched in June 2008, and we have observed such a great amount of success and demand from our western markets," said Rich Coyle, senior vice president, operations, AFS. "This upgrade is less about building out and expanding, and more about bringing the very best choices and connectivity to big businesses in these metro areas."

In addition to these network enhancements, AFS also recently completed the expansion of its Carson City network.
