SAN JOSE, Calif. – Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG), a metro dark fiber network provider in Northern California and Greater Atlanta, quietly entered the market last year and is now serving mission critical data centers, hyperscalers and enterprises with high capacity, dark fiber. The company's new network is intentionally placed to ensure minimal overlap with other networks. The high-density cables allow Bandwidth IG to deliver diverse, low-latency, high-count fiber networks at a competitive value.
Bandwidth IG's Northern California network spans more than 50 route miles with roughly 89,000 fiber miles and the ability to grow exponentially. It reaches more than 50 data centers, representing more than 520 megawatts of IT load. The Greater Atlanta network has more than 40 newly built route miles and 75,000 fiber miles. The network reaches 16 data centers, representing more than 380 megawatts of IT load.
Bandwidth IG supports customers in many major data centers today and plans to rapidly expand to more venues.
Both metro networks are 100% underground and populated with high count single mode fiber cables. The systems are built to meet demand for connectivity today and quickly scale for future needs.
