Light Source Communications and John Laing Group Team-Up to Develop a Dark Fiber Route in North Carolina and Tennessee  Providing Businesses with Increased Security, Speed, and Scalability

​Light Source Communications​ and ​John Laing Group plc, the international originator, active investor and manager of infrastructure projects, are pleased to announce they have teamed to progress the evaluation of a new long-haul dark fiber route in North Carolina and Tennessee. Development has begun on the 438-mile route, which connects Charlotte, North Carolina, and Nashville, Tennessee helping customers increase security, speed, connectivity, network efficiency, and scalability.

Construction on the new route will take twenty-four months and is expected to be completed in 2021. The route will include seven neutral colocation sites to provide space and power.

Following completion, Light Source Communications (LSC), a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC), will have completed long-haul dark fib​er routes in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and North Carolina. ​The route enables unlimited high-quality bandwidth and communication infrastructure services with dedicated high-capacity, low-latency dark fiber optic cable for customers with critical applications and data centers in these markets. The network will be underground, contain multiple conduits, and will be diverse from other existing routes. “Alongside our esteemed partner, John Laing Group, we look forward to allowing businesses, the opportunity to own and operate their own high-performance fiber-optic network providing            autonomy, speed, scalability and the cyber-security they need,” says Light Source           Communications CEO, Debra Freitas.
