In September of 2010, after recognizing the need for an online resource for network operators, Allied Fiber launched the Dark Fiber Community. Now, less than a year later the Dark Fiber Community has reached 100 members and counting. With members ranging from equipment providers to dark fiber manufacturers, data center builders, tower builders, and financing sources, the Dark Fiber Community offers a variety of resources and benefits for both its members and those visiting the website.

Allied Fiber appreciates the support of the community members and their dedication to educating the industry about the many aspects involved in creating a dark fiber network. Each layer of the network is critical and much like the Dark Fiber Community, each individual plays an integral part in connecting the whole. To learn more about the Dark Fiber Community, visit
