Cumberland-based Cbeyond Inc. announced advancements of its dark fiber on-net and near-net build out strategy, in which small and mid-sized businesses can now reap the rewards of broadband high-bandwidth fiber optic networks. Companies and partners interested in tapping into Cbeyond’s TotalNetwork fiber network nationwide can check Cbeyond Near Net availability in their area at www.cbeyond.com/services/network/fibernear-net.

Cbeyond, which launched fully-managed, fiber-based broadband networks under its TotalNetwork service in much of its footprint in 2012, is now extending its fiber build out initiative by deploying dark fiber, which can be turned on as customer demand dictates, to buildings both on its network (on-net) and, as requested, in close proximity to Cbeyond’s fiber rings (near-net). The emphasis will be on large, multi-tenant buildings in Cbeyond markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The company started to deploy dark fiber in Atlanta, Dallas and Denver in 2012. Additional projects began in 2013 in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Cbeyond began deploying its own fiber network, using the infrastructure and interconnection services of

Zayo in 2012. The company now has over 10-percent of its Metro Ethernet customer base on its fiber network.
