FiberLink, LLC had its sixth successful year in 2010 in attracting major new users of its dark fiber networks between Chicago and Denver and Chicago and New Orleans. The two new transactions in 2010 brought the number of users on FiberLink’s routes to 25.
FiberLink sells dark fiber or provides connectivity services to telecommunications providers such as local telephone exchange companies, cable TV companies, cellular carriers, large business users and some of the largest telecommunications companies in the world.
In 2010, FiberLink completed a transaction with the regional fiber network affiliate of one of the major cellular companies in the United States, and a regional fiber services company headquartered in the Midwest. FiberLink provides ongoing operations and maintenance services to those clients and provides colocation space along with its fiber optic transmission lines. FiberLink is currently in active discussions with other prospective dark fiber users.
Also in 2010, FiberLink completed work on a data center in downtown Chicago, located at 725 South Wells Street. It was the lead investor in and co founder of the project. Occupancy by its major anchor tenant was completed in April of last year. Extensive renovations to the building supplying robust power and connectivity along with significant floor loading makes the 725 facility, owned by Digital Capital Partners, LLC, one of the finest facilities of its kind in Chicago.
FiberLink, LLC was formed in 2004, when it acquired over 72 strands on a 1,160 mile fiber optic transmission line extending from downtown Chicago to downtown Denver, connecting such population centers as Des Moines and Omaha. FiberLink later completed a swap with 360networks Inc., which expanded its routes from Chicago to New Orleans, through Saint Louis and Memphis.
FiberLink is owned by three independent telephone exchange companies and Anderson Pacific Corporation, a Chicago-based private investment firm with various telecommunications holdings. FiberLink’s corporate and sales office is in Chicago, and its sales, operations and administrative offices are in Omaha and Cambridge, Nebraska.
