SummitIG to Extend Dark Fiber Network in Northern Virginia

SummitIG today announced it will expand its dark fiber infrastructure throughout Northern Virginia by 50 miles in 2017. The company also expects to increase its 61 on-net buildings to 70.

SummitIG’s existing 500-mile fiber optic network includes unique and densely populated infrastructure stretching from Loudoun County to commercial districts in Reston, greater Vienna and Tysons Corner, and finally reaching developing data center areas of Prince William County. As part of the expansion, SummitIG will extend new network infrastructure to fiber limited corridors of Arlington, Springfield and Lorton to provide unique fiber routes and value sets for its enterprise and federal business.

“The steady demand continues to heat up the market and fuel the need for high performance network connectivity in this region,” said Bill Cook, CEO at SummitIG. “Our network already connects all the key data centers in Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince William counties with high count dark fiber cables, creating a dense networking fabric across the entire metro area. As we continue to expand strategically, we are working with the leaders and developers in the community to make sure that we are enhancing our offering with the density and diversity to meet the needs of the area.
