CityNAP Augments Capacity in Texas with Alpheus Fiber Optic Network

SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 28, 2010) –  CityNAP, a carrier-neutral datacenter with an emphasis on building a top tier network access point, today announced the completion of a new fiber network from Alpheus Communications that will provide high quality public and private circuits for CityNAP customers throughout Texas and beyond. Alpheus is a regional fiber provider with extensive optical assets throughout the state.

“We are excited that Alpheus has completed their fiber build to CityNAP and begun providing service,” said CityNAP CEO Don Douglas. “By having Alpheus on-net with CityNAP we have accomplished two goals; first, providing more options for colocation customers, and second, adding bandwidth capacity and routing for our NAP services.”

“Alpheus, in its effort to continually add important information technology facilities to the network, has worked with CityNAP to bring their facility on-net. Partnering with CityNAP is a strategic initiative that benefits both companies. Alpheus will be able to provide services to CityNAP customers as well as providing our customers services into the CityNAP facility,” said Chip Robertson, VP of Carrier Sales.
Alpheus joins a growing list of carriers who have built into CityNAP and believe in the long-term potential of the facility.
