YORK, PA — January 21, 2020 — United Fiber & Data (UFD), a privately owned telecommunications provider, today announced that a major super regional telecommunications carrier has selected United Fiber & Data for long-haul dark fiber connectivity in the northeastern United States. The solution consists of more than 340 miles of long-haul dark fiber located on UFD’s geographically diverse route from New York City to Ashburn, Virginia.

“We have a very successful, long-standing history with our customer’s senior management team. UFD was able to provide a diverse, scalable dark fiber solution that will drive expanded network coverage for a leading fiber communications provider within its Northeast markets,[..]”

With the growing communications and data transfer needs, carriers and data center providers are increasingly dependent on the reliability of network diversity and a secure backup network to ensure uninterrupted service in the event of a network failure.

“[..]UFD’s route provides expansion and additional diversity to the customer’s fiber routes in the Northeast and offers high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity designed to prevent costly downtime in the event of a network disruption of their primary fiber path,” Lodge continued. “We are well-positioned for diverse regional connectivity between key markets, bypassing the congested existing fiber routes along I-95.”
