UFD’s Diverse Fiber Network Provides Additional High-Performance Connectivity

York, PA – August 6, 2019 – United Fiber & Data (UFD), a leading provider of a secure, scalable, carrier-neutral dark fiber network, has been selected by a global data center & colocation provider for fiber-optic connectivity.

United Fiber & Data’s dark fiber solution for this customer includes 25 pairs/50 fiber strands total. Through this United Fiber & Data solution, the customer will receive additional high-performance connectivity that will link a Manhattan-based data center to the customer’s major facility in Secaucus, New Jersey, while simultaneously connecting the Manhattan data center to a Newark, New Jersey-based data center.

The solution leverages United Fiber & Data’s wholly owned and operated, greenfield built, low-latency network that connects the company’s 60+ mile metro fiber-optic network in New York City (NYC), with 330+ buildings on net, to Ashburn, Virginia, via its 340-mile geographically diverse long-haul route. UFD’s all-new dark fiber network offers substantial levels of bandwidth, a higher level of security, and scalability.

The northeastern United States is a key market and hub for United Fiber & Data, providing customers with a secure, alternative route to meet capacity and diversity needs.
