YORK, Pa., June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United Fiber & Data (UFD), a leading provider of a secure, scalable, carrier-neutral dark fiber network, today announces that a global hyperscaler has selected UFD for fiber-optic connectivity between two of its major U.S. carrier hotels in Manhattan and New Jersey.

The UFD dark fiber solution includes 12 pairs/24 fiber strands total, which provides the global company with expanded high-capacity options for big data transit. The secured route is customized specifically to the customer’s network design and optimized to avoid outages.

“The security, diversity and scalability of our newly constructed low latency network with easy access to key U.S. carrier hotels has brought this major global customer to UFD for reliable, leading-edge data communications,” said Bill Hynes, Founder and CEO of United Fiber & Data. “Our wholly owned and operated greenfield network with all-new fiber allows modern companies to leverage a secure, high-capacity pathway to accommodate exponential data growth.”

This partnership continues to strengthen UFD’s network in the U.S. Recently, UFD announced that its highly anticipated fiber-optic network connecting New York City to Ashburn, Virginia is live. The company’s wholly-owned and operated purpose-built, greenfield network connects UFD’s 60+ mile metro fiber-optic network in NYC to Ashburn, via a 340-mile physically diverse long-haul route. This new pipeline’s framework is comprised of all new construction using a single manufacturer cable that is wholly owned by UFD with a high-count cable that is essential for transferring big data.
