Robust Network Spanning Mid-Atlantic Region Available to FiberLocator Community
NEWTON, Mass. (Oct 4, 2012) – FiberLocator, the leading online fiber infrastructure and colocation database, announced today that Lumos Networks (www.lumosnetworks.com) added its fiber network routes and lit buildings to the extensive FiberLocator research database. The addition of the Lumos Networks footprint to FiberLocator bolsters the data available on the Mid-Atlantic region and pushes the total number of alternate access providers in FiberLocator to over 220.
Lumos Networks offers fiber-based bandwidth services to a service area that extends across Virginia and West Virginia, with pockets of network in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and Kentucky. Lumos Networks boasts 5,800 fiber route miles providing data, broadband, voice and IP services. Additionally, Lumos Networks has 127 POP locations, six data centers, and over 1,000 lit buildings within its service area.
“We are very excited to add such a strong network in the Mid-Atlantic region to our database to better serve the data needs of our users,” said Steve McCarthy, co-creator of FiberLocator Online, of the new addition. “What’s unique about Lumos Networks is the scope of their network in such a concentrated area. It spans across six states that are not generally thought of as being fiber-rich. This opens up a whole new window of possibilities for FiberLocator users, because these are sought-after routes that no other carrier has.”
FiberLocator has been growing rapidly on all fronts and continues to add to the strength and reach of its research database with providers like Lumos Networks. The FiberLocator user community has grown to over 800 users and the amount of fiber data available has nearly tripled since its launch in July of 2011.
“Lumos Networks has added a large number of lit buildings – 1,102 – to FiberLocator. It’s great to be able to have this partnership with them and offer their services to the both the national audience and the local users,” McCarthy continued. “By publishing their maps and on-net building data in FiberLocator, Lumos Networks is able to attract customers that want to connect many of that area’s data centers (including their six in Virginia and West Virginia) and their 127 PoPs, giving customers many options within the region.”
“As a leader in progressive fiber optic technology, we view the opportunity to partner with FiberLocator, to display our footprint in FiberLocator, as a quick and easy way for subscribers to search for fiber routes and realize their proximity to our robust network,” Joe McCourt, Executive Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer said. “Our network spans across the Mid-Atlantic region; FiberLocator allows businesses to pinpoint our coverage as compared to other providers.”
