Strong demand drives Alpheus network past strategic milestone of serving 10,000-plus near-net buildings
HOUSTON – April 11, 2016 – Alpheus Communications announced today that its latest fiber network expansion has added 2,400 near-net buildings, reaching an additional 14,000 businesses in Houston, Dallas and Austin. Buoyed by solid demand for high-performance fiber services, the company’s latest activities mark a major milestone of its fiber build-out investment reaching more than 10,000 near-net buildings and 65,000 businesses in Texas.
“The last couple of quarters were exceptionally strong for Alpheus’ fiber network services, largely due to the growth of Texas businesses and ever increasing demand for network bandwidth to satisfy voice, data, video and cloud solutions,” said Scott Widham, chief executive officer at Alpheus Communications. “Whether we are there to provide connectivity for our carrier customers or to individual businesses, the need is always the same – affordable, high-performance fiber and network services.”
Alpheus’ most recent expansions include new fiber routes near the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, plus growing business, retail, restaurant and multi-family housing areas in Uptown. Alpheus also expanded fiber connectivity near Dallas’ Love Field airport. In Houston, expansion focuses on business areas northwest of downtown Houston east and west of U.S. Highway 290. In Austin, fiber connectivity expansion serves a high-growth area near Loop 360/ Capital of Texas Hwy. and Bee Caves Road.
“Our ability to reach 10,000-plus buildings with more than 65,000 businesses over fiber is a huge milestone for Alpheus,” Widham said. “But while we continue investing in our networks and our team, we remain ever-focused on our highest priority – making sure that Alpheus customers get the personal care, responsiveness and networking expertise they need to keep their businesses on track.”
