Local Roots, Global Focus
When NEF was founded in 2004 by telecom veterans Mike Murphy and Steve McCarthy, the company specialized in fiber assets in New England, and thus was aptly named New England Fiber. Very quickly the operation grew outside of the New England region and expanded to national reach, including relationships with hundreds of metro, regional and national fiber providers, competitive local exchange carriers, and data centers. In fact, the organization has extended its sphere of influence overseas, sourcing network, cloud and data center solutions abroad. No longer limited to New England, NEF is proud to keep local roots in Boston while confirming a broader presence with the evolved brand.
