Merging firms create new technology firm named Freedom Telecommunications
The premier provider of best-in-class data center and fiber optic infrastructure, Wilcon, announced the entry into an agreement to acquire Freedom Dark Fiber Networks. This is a confirmation of its expansion plans as it rebrands the acquired company to Freedom Telecommunications.
This new company will be one of the biggest fiber optic networks located in the southern California area. The additional infrastructure would add 3,000 additional route miles for Wilcon, which translates to another thousand additional enterprise buildings, data centers, internet hubs and wireless communications sites.
According to Wilcon CEO Jon DeLuca, "We put our customers first at Wilcon. By combining Wilcon's robust network capabilities with the tremendous reach and abundant capacity of the Freedom Network, we can deliver even better customer solutions with unparalleled fiber access."
For its part, Freedom Dark Fiber Networks CEO Dave Daigle said, "California is equivalent to being the world's 12th largest economy. Our market is the epicenter of the global media and entertainment industries, home to major biomedical and higher education research centers, the largest manufacturing center in the U.S., and the primary hub of international telecom and trade traffic going to the Asia Pacific region. The collective capabilities of our organizations offer compelling customer solutions in this dynamic region."
