Summit Broadband Expands Presence in Florida with Allied Fiber

  • Summit Broadband
NEW YORK — Summit Broadband, a regional service provider headquartered in Orlando, Florida, has executed a 20-year Indefeasible Right of Use (IRU) agreement and lease for dark fiber and neutral colocation to expand its Florida network between Miami and Jacksonville. Summit Broadband will leverage Allied Fiber’s dark fiber network and neutral colocation facilities in Florida to interconnect its own internal network elements as well as provide access in to its entire network in the state to meet customer demands for greater capacity and more efficient and cost-effective service offerings.

By establishing a presence in the Allied Fiber colocation facilities on the East Coast, Summit Broadband will provide its customers with a direct, physical layer access point into their regional dark fiber and high capacity transport network connecting its service areas. Summit Broadband will also leverage the Allied Fiber network to Miami through Boca Raton where they will connect to the submarine cable system network of their parent company, Cable Bahamas.

Connecting to the Allied Fiber Superstructure

"The agreement with Summit Broadband is a perfect fit and completely consistent with our mission of linking the submarine cable systems in the United States while also providing direct, physical access for all local communities along the way," said Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. "Local communities in Florida are demanding reliable, high speed broadband infrastructure for businesses and consumers and by connecting to the Allied Fiber superstructure, Summit Broadband is able to offer its retail, enterprise and wholesale customers greater reliability and faster connectivity to homes and workplaces.”

“Strategic partnerships with industry leaders like Allied Fiber allow us to expand broadband service offerings to our valued customers,” said Richard Pardy, CEO of Summit Broadband. “The dark fiber network spanning from Miami to Jacksonville will improve the connection capabilities for thousands of our customers along the east coast of Florida.”

Summit Broadband’s partnership with Allied Fiber continues its expansion throughout the state of Florida. In 2013, the company merged U.S. Metro, Marco Island Cable and NuVu, extending its area of service to Southwest and Central Florida. Earlier this month, Allied Fiber announced plans to complete the next segment of its Southeast Route by connecting Jacksonville with Atlanta.
