RCN Log

RCN Business just made its network easier to find. The communications provider delivering network solutions for voice, data and video, announces today that it has partnered with NEF, Inc. to display its network within NEF’s FiberLocator® database. RCN Business’ fiber maps and lit building locations are now easily searchable by RCN’s channel partners and agents that subscribe to the application. With FiberLocator, agents can now determine specific RCN network routes in each of their cities in order to provide the best RCN Business service solution for their clients and/or prospects.

“RCN has 6,200 fiber miles in five major markets and FiberLocator is a phenomenal way for us to show the expansiveness of our fiber footprint,” commented Michael Carrosquilla, SVP Commercial Services at RCN. “Several RCN agents already use this service and now have the ability to easily view the RCN footprint with FiberLocator. Since RCN is proactively building into new multi-tenant properties, we can present agents with real-time information on new buildings and potential customers.”
