Everstream has completed its previously announced purchase of fiber network assets from Uniti. In addition to adding Uniti’s customers, the acquisition extends Everstream’s fiber network into Pennsylvania – including the major markets of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Southern New Jersey and Northern Delaware.
Metro fiber and long-haul fiber are included in the agreement. The deal follows other recent Everstream expansions, including its acquisition of Rocket Fiber and its move into five Midwestern markets last year.
With all of the deals combined, Evertstream invested more than $300 million in growing its fiber network to more than 15,000 route miles across the Midwest, building more than 2,000 route miles of new fiber and supplemented that with strategic acquisitions.
Cleveland, Ohio-based Everstream focuses on business connectivity including dedicated internet access, dark fiber, Ethernet and solutions for data centers as well as direct peering with major carriers and cloud providers. Everstream’s network can provide speeds of up to 100 Gbps, according to the company.
With the latest completed acquisition, the company’s network now includes:
- More than a dozen cities across Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and more than 10 additional cities.
- Access to more than 52 data centers
- Dense fiber coverage in the greater Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas.
- Metro fiber and long-haul fiber.
“Everstream’s acquisition of the Uniti network assets in Pennsylvania has given us access to new fiber infrastructure and customers across Pennsylvania,” said Everstream CEO Brett Lindsey, in a prepared statement. “As we continue to densify our network, these markets will experience not only Everstream’s high-capacity, low-latency connectivity services but also our unrivaled commitment to customer service.”
Everstream plans to open offices in Philadelphia sometime in the third quarter of 2021.
