Horizon Continues Its Midwest Expansion with Infinity Fiber Acquisition

Horizon, a facilities-based fiber-optic broadband service provider based in Ohio, has just announced its acquisition of Infinity Fiber, LLC. This acquisition augments the company’s footprint in Indiana with additional data center connectivity and fiber infrastructure in downtown Indianapolis and Bloomington, Indiana. Furthermore, this transaction underscores Horizon’s trajectory of strategic growth throughout the Midwest. Horizon anticipates the network will be ready for services by Q2 2021.

“Horizon is excited about acquiring Infinity Fiber to further cement our market expansion plan for Indiana,” said Jim Capuano, Chief Executive Officer for Horizon. “The Infinity network complements our existing fiber assets in the Indianapolis market while also providing native connectivity to the region’s data centers. The combined network assets accelerate our plans for Indiana significantly. Our aggressive strategy for expansion and innovation is what has made us a premier fiber-optic broadband partner, and we continue to take the next steps to grow our high-quality, highly reliable services across the Midwest.”

Infinity Fiber’s approximately 450 route miles of long-haul fiber strengthens Horizon’s 4,500 miles of existing fiber infrastructure in the region. This enables Horizon to deliver connectivity on a unique fiber route from Chicago’s 350 E. Cermak data center to South Bend, Indiana, and Indianapolis — all of which ties back to Horizon’s fiber backbone in Columbus, Ohio. Customers can leverage speeds up to 400 Gbps, and soon 800 Gbps, across the company’s entire network, including connectivity to Chicago and intermediate data centers. 

“This unique asset is a game changer for our presence in Indiana,” commented Glenn Lytle, Chief Revenue Officer for Horizon. “We’ll be able to better serve our wholesale and carrier partners with a unique fiber route from Columbus, Ohio, through Indianapolis to Chicago, as well as offer downtown Indianapolis enterprise customers direct cloud connectivity, Internet, Ethernet, and Hosted Voice products over our first-class fiber network.”

Horizon empowers carrier, government, healthcare, education and enterprise business customers, offering flexible, customizable and cutting-edge network solutions with a leading commitment to customer care. Today, the company continues to grow its fiber infrastructure footprint in service of these organizations, delivering mission-critical networking capabilities to meet any and all evolving business requirements.
