  • 123NET

Three Michigan companies, 123NET, DayStarr Communications and Peninsula Fiber Network, announced a 90-mile fiber route connecting Southfield to Lansing. This network will enhance connectivity options in underserved areas.

The project partners are 123NET, Michigan's premier fiber internet, colocation, and voice services provider; Owosso, MI-based DayStarr Communications, a high-speed Internet and phone service provider; and Marquette, MI-based Peninsula Fiber Network, a provider of network, NG911, and core services throughout the state and in Wisconsin.

This multi-million-dollar joint investment brings fiber opportunities to Lansing, Okemos, Williamston, Webberville, Fowlerville, Howell, Brighton and other municipalities along the path.
Underground construction has begun and will continue for approximately 18 months. One common goal of all three companies is improving connectivity options to nearby underserved or unserved areas. This network investment will bring connectivity to nearby communities and create opportunities for more partnerships in the future.

"Creating the best possible network requires multiple, diverse routes between population centers," said Dan Irvin, 123NET's President & CEO. "We have 25 years of experience building fiber along both traditional and lesser-used routes to create diversity and bring fiber into underserved areas. It's all part of our mission to make Michigan the best connected on the planet. PFN and Daystarr are ideal partners in this latest expansion."

Businesses and municipalities along the route are encouraged to contact 123NETPFN, or DayStarr for service availability and construction information.
