Dark Fiber — Custom Networks
No fiber in your area? No problem.
If no fiber provider currently has network in your area, NEF can assist you in designing a custom built network solution. NEF has construction partners in all areas of the country that will design and build custom private fiber networks. Together, NEF and the contractor will handle everything from engineering design to permitting to physical construction. Once the network is completed, NEF will arrange for ongoing maintenance of the network.
Building private fiber networks can be capital intensive. NEF will work with you and the network construction companies to determine the best way to finance the network. Payment options range from capital purchase to monthly lease backs. In most cases, the monthly lease back options are less expensive than the monthly high bandwidth service offerings from the local exchange carrier. That means you could get the speed, security and scalability of a custom network for less than you're paying now.
