Pittsburgh, PA – December 10, 2019 – DQE Communications, the premier provider of high-speed fiber optic networking for businesses and carriers throughout Southwestern PA, Eastern OH and Northern WV, is bringing its fiber optic-based network solutions eastward in Pennsylvania. The company is extending its backbone network, currently embedded around Pittsburgh in western Pennsylvania, from Indiana to Harrisburg, just 100 miles from Philadelphia. To further support this expansion, the company is also planning a 90-mile metro build in Harrisburg, the state Capitol of Pennsylvania. As a result, DQE will be able to offer robust support to new customers as well as businesses with geographically dispersed branches.
“Digital transformation throughout Pennsylvania is continuing at an ever-increasing pace,” says Jim Morrozi, CEO of DQE Communications. “From educational institutions to enterprises, financial institutions, healthcare organizations and commercial real estate developments, business leaders need networks that are fast, dynamic and increasingly intelligent. By serving as a local provider of highly scalable, reliable fiber optic network solutions, we help them streamline their operations and future-proof their organizations for the growing use of technologies such as enterprise virtualization, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. This network expansion marks a strategic push eastward, enabling us to better serve our Pittsburgh-based customers with remote locations as well as those with Harrisburg as a focal point.”
According to the PA.gov website, the state is home to technological innovators with several cities offering optimal resources for early-stage entrepreneurs, including talent. Whereas Pittsburgh is home to strong manufacturing, financial and medical industries as well as tech giants like Google, Uber and Amazon, Harrisburg offers a favorable environment for start-ups with state grants and access to growing tech talent from the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. As a result, fiber optic network solutions have a vital role to play in facilitating the development of the region’s digital economy.
