    About Allied Fiber

    Allied Fiber was the first open-access, integrated, network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure provider in the United States with a national plan. Allied Fiber provided next generation long haul and short haul fiber optic solutions with integrated neutral colocation services for domestic and global network operators. Allied Fiber was on track to meet the demands for access to neutral colocation and dark fiber services throughout the continental United States as it was building a ring around the country connecting the submarine cable landing regions and facilitating open-access interconnection nationally.
