LAWRENCE, KS — Bear Communications, a provider of permanently outsourced infrastructure services to the wireline and wireless telecommunications, broadband cable and FTTP/x industries, announced it has secured a long-term, 1000-mile fiber optic network construction project with Huntsville Utilities in Huntsville, Alabama. Under the terms of the three-year contract, Bear Communications will provide aerial and underground construction services in the deployment of the fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network.

Huntsville Utilities is preparing for the future of the utility industry by installing a fiber optic network to operate their electric, water and natural gas systems. In addition to capacity for the operation of the utility infrastructure, the network design includes excess capacity known as "dark fiber" which will be available for lease to other commercial and public entities to provide services and transfer data. "After a thorough vetting process, Huntsville Utilities selected Bear Communications as the fiber network construction contractor for the fiber network expansion project," said Stacy Cantrell, vice president of engineering at Huntsville Utilities.

Bear Communications is a provider of permanently outsourced infrastructure services to the wireline and wireless telecommunications, broadband cable and FTTP/x industries throughout the United States. "We are exceptionally proud of securing this award from Huntsville Utilities given the steep competition of over fifteen competing companies," said Lance Addison, president and COO of Bear Communications. "We believe Bear's proven track record of participation and successful completion of FTTP network construction projects in places such as Kansas City, Nashville and Cleveland was a contributing factor to our selection."
