Dark Fibre

Dark-fibre infrastructure that gives you unrestricted connectivity between core sites, branch sites, or aggregation nodes.

With dark fibre, you can connect one site to another using the most reliable and unimpeded communications technology available today.


Dark fibre lets you connect one site to another using your own transmission equipment. You can use it to construct your own communications network, and in turn put your services within reach of your customers.
