CenturyLink, Inc. is making a significant investment to expand its network in the South Florida market, which the company expects to help to serve the fast-growing demand for enterprise services in Latin America, as well as from South Florida organizations doing business there. The CenturyLink Florida investment includes a new network gateway, to manage the flow of internet and data traffic on CenturyLink’s global network, and a high-efficiency data center.
“CenturyLink is committed to providing our business and government customers with world-class network and technology services,” said Andre Rodriguez, CenturyLink general manager for the South Florida market, in a prepared statement. “This expansion enables us to grow our capabilities in South Florida and Latin America and position our customers at the vanguard of the digital transformation age. The new gateway will also support the evolution and simplification of CenturyLink’s product portfolio as well as our vision to become our customers’ trusted connection to the networked world.”
As we reported late last year, CenturyLink previously announced plans to expand in Florida, with a fiber construction project in Cape Coral to enable 55,000 homes and businesses in the area with internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second that was expected to be completed early this year.
