Bandwidth bottlenecks can slow data traffic, sometimes at the last mile. This is because most fiber optic networks do not extend all the way to the businesses in need of service. Southern Telecom provides metro dark fiber that can deliver this last mile to ensure fast connections between you and your customers in the Southeast.
Southern Telecom has 1,500 route miles installed in the Southeast. We will also construct spurs off this route to support many of the nearby tier II-plus cities. We provide HVAC, power, and other custom energy solutions for optronics at our operation hubs and in-line amplification sites (ILAs) on the long-haul routes and points of presence (POPs) in the metro areas supporting the metro fiber rings.
Southern Telecom has metro dark fiber networks available in Birmingham, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa for a combined offering of 144 route miles of fiber. Southern Telecom also provides dark fiber optic connectivity between Montgomery to just outside Birmingham. In Montgomery and Birmingham, Southern Telecom operates the cities' largest carrier-neutral colocation hotels.
Southern Telecom's 332 mile Atlanta to Jacksonville dark fiber route connects Atlanta's metropolitan dark fiber network, Macon business district dark fiber network and the Jacksonville business district dark fiber network.

Southern Telecom has dark fiber in Florida that reaches from Jacksonville through St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Melbourne, West Palm, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami and up the Florida West Coast through Ft. Myers and Tampa to Orlando and back to Daytona Beach. This dark fiber route passes through six percent of the U.S. population and offers connectivity to international traffic via other carriers' Latin American submarine cables.
