Southern Light to Bring Increased Fiber Optic Capacity to Decatur, Ga

  • Southern Light
MOBILE, AL — Southern Light, a Mobile-based provider of fiber-optic infrastructure solutions in the Southeast, announced a strategic expansion in Decatur, Ga. In April of 2015, Southern Light secured a franchise agreement with the city, creating a framework for the company to build in city-owned rights of way. Since then, Southern Light has begun construction to other telecommunications facilities, laying the foundation for further expansion.

Southern Light will now begin construction on a Central Business District network, which will initially serve the city of Decatur. Southern Light will support broadband capacity needs throughout the city, focusing on hospitals, businesses, non-profits, financial institutions and government entities.

A New Option for Entities in Decatur
"In our increasingly connected world, access to high speed broadband is critical. Southern Light will provide entities in Decatur another option, one that has been tested and proven," said Brad Phillips, director of information systems for the city of Decatur. "This network will be an economic development asset as we as a community compete with municipalities across the country."

"We are thrilled about expanding our network in Decatur," said Andy Newton, president and CEO of Southern Light. "The city has been very business–friendly, outlining clear parameters for us to operate efficiently and effectively. This expansion will provide much needed service to local businesses, carriers, and government entities, and we look forward to being strong corporate citizens as we build out our network in Decatur."

Southern Light designs, constructs and operates more than 5,000 route miles of fiber optic networks in the Southeast, delivering large bandwidth solutions to telecommunications carriers, governmental agencies and enterprise customers throughout the region. The company provides high resiliency services to the most demanding customers using its dense last-mile fiber optic networks.
