24/7 Fiber Network, a high capacity transport and dark fiber network provider, has announced the expansion of its footprint into underserved markets throughout the Delmarva Peninsula and into the metro Washington D.C. area.

The company is constructing a dark fiber footprint deep into the Delmarva Peninsula, a large area on the East Coast of the United States occupied by portions of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. This area, considered an underserved market, will soon be connected via 24/7’s high fiber count dark fiber network 100 miles into the region’s main business districts located in Salisbury, MD and Wilmington, DE. The network will then continue another 100 miles into the Baltimore metro area with connectivity to 24/7’s Baltimore’s central business district footprint, and from there it will connect to 24/7’s long-haul route directly into the Washington D.C. market.

The network will deliver a fully diverse, high capacity 432-strand fiber route, fulfilling a key communications gap in the region. The new network will provide a fully protected, metro area ring capable of serving modern communications infrastructures as required by wireless 3G, 4G, tower backhaul providers and carriers.
