DQE Communications brings its fiber optic network solutions to a new part of Pennsylvania by expanding into the Harrisburg area. DQE is the premier provider of high-speed fiber optic networking for businesses and carriers throughout southwestern Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia. Through its expansion, DQE is extending its backbone network from the Pittsburgh area to cities further east in the commonwealth.

DQE has plans for a 90-mile metro build in Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania, resulting in a robust offering of support to new customers and businesses with geographic diversity.

Jim Morrozi, CEO of DQE says the expansion will assist with the ongoing digital transformation taking place in Pennsylvania and beyond.

“From educational institutions to enterprises, financial institutions, healthcare organizations and commercial real estate developments, business leaders need networks that are fast, dynamic and increasingly intelligent,” said Morrozi. “By serving as a local provider of highly scalable, reliable fiber optic network solutions, we help them streamline their operations and future-proof their organizations for the growing use of technologies such as enterprise virtualization, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. This network expansion marks a strategic push eastward, enabling us to better serve our Pittsburgh-based customers with remote locations as well as those with Harrisburg as a focal point.”

According to the PA.gov website, the commonwealth is home to technological innovators with several cities offering optimal resources for early-stage entrepreneurs, including talent. Whereas Pittsburgh is home to strong manufacturing, financial and medical industries as well as tech giants like Google, Uber and Amazon, Harrisburg offers a favorable environment for start-ups with state grants and access to growing tech talent from the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. As a result, fiber optic network solutions have a vital role to play in facilitating the development of the region’s digital economy.
