Dark Fiber

Bandwidth bottlenecks can slow data traffic, sometimes at the last mile. This is because most fiber optics networks do not extend all the way to the businesses in need of service. Southern Telecom provides metro dark fiber service laterals and backbone fiber that can deliver this last mile to ensure fast connections in the Southeast. Southern Telecom's solutions will eliminate bandwidth as an impediment to your growth without major capital expenditures or maintenance obligations.

Additionally, fast direct access to Southern Company assets and to transmission and distribution rights of way help speed development of new points of service throughout the Southeast. For instance, use of an idle steampipe network running under metropolitan Atlanta enabled Southern Telecom to lock in valuable real estate and accelerate the permitting and construction process to better serve key buildings.

Southern Telecom's fiber and conduit services support route diversity and access to numerous key colocation sites in Atlanta, Macon and Jacksonville with plans to add more cities in the Southeast.

You will receive the support of our network operations center (NOC) and field technicians for 24/7 site-monitoring and maintenance.
