Dallas,Texas-based bandwidth and wireless infrastructure provider PEG Bandwidth recently completed a 100G Ethernet route from Peoria to Chicago via Bloomington and Champaign, which will allow it to offer high bandwidth Ethernet solutions to its customers in Illinois.
The route is more than 225 miles long and complements the company's expansive fiber network that gives customers throughout rural America connections at network speeds comparable to those in metropolitan markets.
PEG Bandwidth is now accepting orders on this route, which greatly increases the bandwidth infrastructure currently in place, Greg Octyl, senior vice president of sales and marketing at PEG Bandwidth, said.
"This route will provide rural cable and telecom companies in Illinois the ability to connect to major hubs in Chicago," Octyl said. "With this new service, PEG Bandwidth is providing more speed and capacity, thus allowing businesses in these underserved areas to have cost-effective high-speed services, normally only found in Tier 1 markets."
