With the local network at their disposal, partners such as Arvig have the potential to deliver high-quality voice and data services to business and carrier customers across a multi-state region at a cost below those charged by large wholesale companies.

FREMONT, CA: Arvig, a telecommunications company, announced a strategic leap forward, joining a partner network of various telecommunications providers in the central and western United States established to streamline last-mile connectivity. With the local network at their disposal, partners such as Arvig have the potential to deliver high-quality voice and data services to business and carrier customers across a multi-state region at a cost below those charged by large wholesale companies.

“This new partnership will help Arvig attract new carrier customers as well as extend Arvigs fiber reach to serve more multi-location enterprise customers across a broader geography,” said David Schornack, Director of Business Development, Arvig. “In addition, it will enable Arvig to build upon recent investments in its fiber network by expanding from Minneapolis to Omaha to Chicago, bringing high-speed, reliable connectivity to a greater number of communities and businesses.”

Other coalition members include Blackfoot, FatBeam OPTK, and Range. The alliance enables providers to easily link across multiple states via a secure high-capacity, low-latency fiber backbone. This particular customer-centric approach and a strict service level agreement (SLA) are the main differentiator for partners.

“Likewise, the partnership will enable coalition partners to service their customers via Arvigs 10,000 route miles of fiber throughout Minnesota. Having Arvig become a member of the partner network is a strategic addition to the eastern side of our regional footprint,” said Todd Twete, Director of Carrier Services, Blackfoot Communications, and a partner network founder. “Arvigs network helps fill a key component for the demand we see for unique and diverse transport routes to the Midwest.”
