AUGUSTA, GA–December 28, 2015--Tower Cloud recently announced a new contract with one of the top four mobile carriers to expand fiber network infrastructure and bring high-speed connectivity and capacity to Augusta, Georgia and surrounding areas. The contract adds 25,350 fiber miles (or 236 route miles), bringing the total Tower Cloud route miles in the area to 375. This contract will be an economic driver for the region and contributes to a milestone year for Tower Cloud as one of the largest tower backhaul and high-speed networking providers in the Southeastern United States.
Tower Cloud, a southeast based Communications Infrastructure Specialist, builds high-capacity broadband transport networks providing the highest quality lit Ethernet backhaul services for mobile service providers, wholesale & enterprise customers and strategic dark fiber solutions throughout the Southeast. With this latest contract, Tower Cloud will expand to over 8,000 route miles of fiber installed and will extend its fiber infrastructure by greater than 25 percent, covering hundreds of municipalities from Atlanta to Central Florida. Additionally, this contract will provide jobs, revenue and connectivity for the greater Augusta area including Statesboro, Savannah and Macon.
“Tower Cloud’s growth is a reflection of the expanding demand carriers are experiencing. More robust fiber infrastructure and mobile expansion are critical for making connectivity reliable and accessible,” said Ron Mudry, Founder and CEO for Tower Cloud. “This agreement in Augusta will provide a base of high speed fiber infrastructure in the area and include macro tower and small cell initiatives to serve urban and rural communities. Additionally it will bring a wealth of dark fiber and high bandwidth accessibility to areas such as surrounding military bases, hospitals, universities, business and financial institutions.”
In addition to tower backhaul services for mobile carriers, Tower Cloud is expanding its private enterprise infrastructure support through the company’s new Ethernet Private Line Services. The new fiber network expansion will also include more connections to regional POP’s and data centers, as well as backhaul support and more capacity for wireless towers.
