ST. LOUIS — T-REX, St. Louis’s innovative co-working space and technology incubator, will stay connected in its new home with dark fiber cables from Arch Fiber Networks. T-REX moved into the Lammert Building on Washington Avenue early in 2014.

Two dark fiber cables, donated to the organization by Arch Fiber, a provider of dark fiber in the St. Louis area, will help provide faster broadband speeds to the busy entrepreneurs occupying T-REX’s offices. The buildings new occupants seem satisfied with connection speeds so far.

“I don’t think they all understand why they have fantastic broadband connectivity,” said Jay DeLong, the Regional Chamber’s vice president for new ventures and capital formation, “but they appreciate it being on and fast.”

Arch Fiber’s dark fiber network worked well for T-REX because it offered options for communications providers and didn’t lock them into a long-term contract, DeLong went on to say. Of working with Arch Fiber Networks, DeLong said he felt that the company understood what start-ups and technology companies needed and were prepared to help T-REX achieve that as quickly as their pace demanded.

To maximize connectivity, T-REX also invested in enterprise wireless networking hardware. “I think that the investment we made in the building and the technology is going to ensure that there are no obstacles in our tenants’ rate speeds anytime in the near future,” said DeLong.
