Logix Fiber Networks has further expanded its Texas fibre-optic footprint by installing about 17 miles of fibre in the Houston suburb of Stafford, Texas.
"The new Logix fibre park in Stafford demonstrates our deep commitment to Texas and the businesses that fuel the state's powerful economic engine," said Logix Fiber Networks chief strategy and marketing officer Richard Rosmarin. The company says its fibre gives more than 1,300 businesses in Stafford a wide array of affordable and flexible broadband service options.
"Continued economic development in Texas relies on businesses, especially mid-size companies, having choices when it comes to high-speed voice and data services, as well as dozens of carrier-neutral data centres, especially from a fellow Texas company that's easy to work with and knows how business gets done in the Lone Star State."
After completing its acquisition earlier this year of Alpheus Communications, a provider of metro-regional fibre and networking solutions that owned facilities in the Texas markets of Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston (the DASH markets), Logix has more than 6,200 route miles of network spanning 225,000 fibre miles, and serves more than 12,500 enterprise and carrier customers across Texas.
"We are seeing strong demand from businesses across a variety of industries, from healthcare to financial, and of course, the energy industry, but a common thread connecting all these companies is their desire for solutions that fit their needs and not forcing them into a cookie-cutter approach," added Rosmarin.
"Logix is very flexible in how we engineer solutions for our customers, whether it's how we package fibre-based voice and data services for them, how we support their disaster recovery needs, or that we are happy to work with data centres of their choice. We believe that businesses should never feel force-fit into a technology solution or data centre location."
Logix, which operates its own high-performance data centre facilities in the DASH markets and connects to more than 80 data centres in Texas, is planning to further expand its Stafford fibre park soon with more fibre construction east of Murphy Road.
