Independent fiber-optic network services provider LOGIX Fiber Networks says it has increased its Texas fiber footprint by 17 miles with the addition of new fiber in the Houston suburb of Stafford, TX. The company says the new fiber cable infrastructure is in position to meet the needs of more than 1,300 businesses in Stafford.
The new Stafford fiber park is bordered approximately on the north by West Airport Boulevard; to the east by Murphy Road; to the south by Highway 90; and to the west by Eldridge Road. The company says it plans to expand east of Murphy road in the near future.
"The new LOGIX fiber park in Stafford demonstrates our deep commitment to Texas and the businesses that fuel the state's powerful economic engine," said LOGIX Fiber Networks Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer Richard Rosmarin. "Continued economic development in Texas relies on businesses, especially mid-size companies, having choices when it comes to high-speed voice and data services, as well as dozens of carrier-neutral data centers, especially from a fellow Texas company that's easy to work with and knows how business gets done in the Lone Star State.
"We are seeing strong demand from businesses across a variety of industries, from healthcare to financial, and of course, the energy industry, but a common thread connecting all these companies is their desire for solutions that fit their needs and not forcing them into a cookie-cutter approach," added Rosmarin.
The fiber network expansion follows LOGIX's acquisition of Alpheus Communications (see "LOGIX renamed LOGIX Fiber Networks after finalizing Alpheus Communications acquisition"). Alpheus operated metro-regional fiber to serve Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. Overall, LOGIX claims more than 6,200 route miles of fiber-optic network spanning 225,000 fiber miles. The company says it serves more than 12,500 enterprise and carrier customers across the state, where it operates its own data center facilities in the DASH markets and connects to more than 80 data centers in Texas.
