US Signal, an industry-leading network and cloud-hosting provider in the Midwest, announced today the expansion of its 14,000-mile Midwest fiber network into the Holland metro market. The project includes activating 100 miles of metro and long haul fiber to connect the cities of Holland, Zeeland and Hudsonville back to Grand Rapids. The expansion, to be completed in July, is expected to result in enhanced bandwidth options and competitive pricing for customers, allowing more economical service options.

“Customers are increasingly requiring more bandwidth,” said Kirk Dombek, vice president of business development at US Signal. “This expansion will allow us to reach more enterprises in Ottawa County and connect them to our regional network, cloud and data centers.”

US Signal will build direct fiber access into businesses along the newly minted route, creating low latency, private, dedicated connections for Internet and other US Signal services. Businesses in the Holland and Zeeland areas will benefit from the expansion by having access to US Signal’s network backbone, a network that provides a full suite of colocation, security, and computing services. The expansion connects the Holland, Michigan area to US Signal’s network, which includes a newly completed 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art data center in Grand Rapids.

“There is an increased need for fiber-based services in the lakeshore market and we expect demand to grow in 2015 and 2016,” continued Dombek. “This expansion will allow us to serve our customers in the Holland market by providing alternatives to current cable carriers, along with unmatched end-to-end reliability and security.”
