Optic Communications is announcing further expansion of its fiber-optic network in Pittsburg. The latest growth will enable the company to provide service to small businesses in areas of Pittsburg for the first time. Optic’s network growth comes largely credited to a robust Pittsburg economy and success of the company’s already-installed network.
The first area to receive small business services from Optic will be along North Broadway from 23rd Street north to Atkinson. Businesses along both sides of Broadway will be able to hook up to the gigabit fiber-optic network.
“When we originally announced the Pittsburg network, we said we were going to focus on large enterprise customers. Our success in that area has directly caused us to expand our services to small businesses now,” stated Optic Marketing Manager Nick Saporito.
Optic began operating in Pittsburg in 2015 with a multimillion dollar investment into its Crawford County network. The investment has yielded a geographically-redundant network that has specialized in custom services for Pittsburg’s large businesses.
This expansion will be one of two major expansions for Optic. The company is concurrently expanding to Loma Linda, Missouri; its first Missouri market. Optic will continue to grow following the demand for the best service in the area.
