Fibertech Networks says it has completed its initial phase of building out more new core fiber-optic cable infrastructure in Southeastern Michigan. The company has completed construction on 100 miles of fiber-optic network in two, self-healing ring configurations, and is currently carrying broadband traffic in the metro Detroit area.

Earlier this year, Fibertech announced plans to build 800 miles of fiber in and around Detroit, including numerous suburban cities such as Trenton, Canton, Dearborn, Southfield, Warren, Troy and Chesterfield, among others. The entire core network is expected to be completed by third quarter 2015.

"We’re excited about the opportunity to join business leaders, politicians and others who are investing in Southeast Michigan’s infrastructure," said Mike Hurley, VP sales and marketing of Fibertech. "We have already hired initial staff to help construct and sell services to area businesses over the network, and expect to add a few more local employees by year’s end."

Fibertech currently has networks operational in Pittsburgh, PA; Indianapolis, IN; Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo, OH ; Providence, RI; Hartford, Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury, New London and New Haven, CT; Springfield and Worcester, MA; Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Binghamton, White Plains, and Albany, NY; Wilmington, DE; Montgomery County, MD; Trenton, Newark and Atlantic City, NJ; and Philadelphia.
