Southern Telecom, Inc. (STI), a subsidiary of Southern Company, has announced new underground fiber routes and colocation facilities are being planned and constructed as part of a network fiber strategy across the Southeast. Existing cables will be replaced with new underground fiber featuring increased capacity, higher fiber counts, and state-of-the-art technology to enable more flexibility for STI’s current and future customers.
STI is constructing and evaluating several new routes around the Southeast. There are over 600 miles currently under construction, primarily as part of joint projects. The company is also seeking route joint build partners and customers for other existing routes and potential greenfield projects.
“We are constantly evaluating routes and are committed to offering our customers and partners the very best dark fiber and colocation services in the Southeast,” says Barry Navarre, business development manager, STI. “As part of our network fiber strategy, we’ll be enhancing current routes and introducing new ones through strategic partnerships.”
