Fiber-optic network services provider FiberLight LLC says it has begun has begun construction of new “super metro” and regional fiber infrastructure through Central and Eastern Texas. The new network includes the cities of Austin, San Antonio, Schertz, Corpus Christi, Waco, and Laredo among a total list of 64 cities.

These new fiber-optic cables will link these cities with FiberLight’s existing regional networks, including previously announced build out in western Texas. That roll out is more than half completed, FiberLight asserts. When both projects reach completion, FiberLight will own just over 9,000 route miles in the state.

“We at FiberLight continue to focus our efforts around three growth areas: wholesale, tower backhaul, and enterprise. This large win is in the tower backhaul space which will catapult our wholesale and enterprise initiatives in Texas,” said Michael P. Miller, FiberLight’s CEO and Founder.

“This is an enormous boost to the entire state of Texas as we install high fiber count cables. This will allow FiberLight to service all large and small businesses, government, educational institutions, and carriers for many years to come. This will also immediately improve LTE rollouts throughout the state,” said Texas native and FiberLight Chief Development Officer Ron Kormos.
