Lumos Networks, which is a fiber-based service provider in the mid-Atlantic region, agreed to acquire Clarity Communications. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Clarity operates a 730 mile fiber network with 75 on-net locations located across four states in the south-eastern United States. The vast majority of Clarity’s operations and fiber mileage is in the state of North Carolina.
Timothy G. Biltz, CEO of Lumos Networks said “Clarity, led by founders Todd Peverall and Andy Carwile, gives us an instant foothold within the Carrier and Enterprise verticals in many high growth North Carolina markets and gives us a new sales channel into various government end markets, including military installations and e-rate. Clarity will be a contributing factor in Lumos achieving the necessary scale needed to become a pure play fiber bandwidth infrastructure company.”
Lumos offers end-to-end connectivity in 24 markets in Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and Kentucky. It has a fiber network of 9,204 fiber route miles and 475,507 total fiber strand miles, connecting 1,297 unique Fiber to the Cell sites, 1,642 total FTTC connections, 36 data centers, including 7 company owned co-location facilities, 1,984 on-net buildings and approximately 3,300 total on-net locations.
