Fiber-optic network services provider LOGIX Fiber Networks says it will add 722 buildings to its fiber footprint in Texas. The company expects to complete the additions by the end of the third quarter of this year. The expansion will cover the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston (DASH) markets.
"We're committing the financial capital and skilled staff needed to significantly grow our fiber footprint because there's a very long line of businesses looking for enterprise-class bandwidth," said LOGIX Chief Strategy Officer Richard Rosmarin. "Reliable and symmetrical bandwidth is a must-have for businesses of all sizes. Now, more than ever, small and midsize companies can be on par with large corporations and compete effectively with the right technology solutions, and we deliver that in a flexible framework that's been a LOGIX hallmark for 35 years."
LOGIX focuses on the DASH markets with 6,200 route miles of fiber network running 225,000 fiber miles. The company says it serves more than 12,500 enterprise and carrier customers via its own high-performance data center facilities as well as connectivity to more than 100 data centers in Texas (see "LOGIX Fiber Networks to continue Houston, Dallas, and Austin data center expansions").
"Not that long ago, only Fortune 500 companies demanded dedicated symmetrical bandwidth, but today, as companies of all sizes shift applications and even their business models to the cloud, downtime, throttled data speeds, and latency are revenue killers," Rosmarin said. "Rather than enter into a restrictive, long-term contract with legacy providers, businesses are telling us they want a customized approach, and we're investing to ensure that wherever they look in Texas, they'll find that LOGIX makes excellent business and financial sense."
