Bandwidth IG and Flexential Team Up to Deliver Dark Fiber to Atlanta

Bandwidth IG and Flexential are joining forces to deliver more dark fiber connectivity to a growing part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. Bandwidth IG, a rapidly growing provider of dark fiber, is connecting Flexential’s Atlanta – Douglasville to its newly constructed dark fiber and conduit network that services Douglasville, Lithia Springs and other parts of Douglas County, where data center growth has accelerated.

Atlanta Dark Fiber & Data Center Development

The Atlanta data center market is one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S. and is expected to more than triple over the next several years. Concerns over how quickly data centers have developed in the city have recently led to the Atlanta City Council considering legislation that would prohibit more data centers from being constructed near the BeltLine and other dense areas. This demonstrates the need for more dark fiber and data center connectivity in metro areas outside the core business district.

Bandwidth IG’s network is strategically placed to provide dark fiber capacity to data centers in the downtown area, as well as emerging parts of the Greater Atlanta area, such as Flexential’s Atlanta-Douglasville facility located approximately 20 miles west of Atlanta.

“Given Atlanta’s strategic positioning as a hub for data center connectivity to other major markets, we anticipate continued expansion and the need for additional dark fiber services,” said Bruce Garrison, CEO of Bandwidth IG. “By intentionally placing networks in emerging areas of Atlanta, we’re creating new opportunities for connectivity and enabling partners like Flexential to deliver fast and reliable services to their customers.” 

Serving Greater Atlanta

Flexential’s ecosystem of colocation services at its Atlanta-Douglasville data center include cloud capabilities and the ability to connect to multiple data centers across 19 U.S. markets through the Flexential FlexAnywhere™ platform. 

Bandwidth IG’s Greater Atlanta network delivers more than 170 route miles across Greater Atlanta, including parts of Douglas, Fayette, Rockdale and Newton Counties.
