Dark Fiber

Unprecedented Performance for Hyperscalers & Enterprises

Dedicated & Virtually Unlimited Bandwidth

To keep pace with ever-increasing capacity demands, Hyperscalers and enterprises are increasingly turning their attention towards dark fiber connectivity. 

  • Scale up or down based on your bandwidth needs
  • Manage and maintain the network the way you want
  • Improve performance, increase security, and reduce latency

With dark fiber, you dictate everything about the network’s architecture, latency, and security with nearly no limits on bandwidth. 

Atlanta to Myrtle Beach Dark Fiber Route

DC BLOX is building the first dark fiber route between the new Myrtle Beach cable landing station in South Carolina, connecting through Charleston, Augusta, Atlanta’s major connectivity centers, and landing in Lithia Springs Georgia. Using our knowledge and relationships in the local region, we negotiated key rights of way to give high capacity enterprises and hyperscalers the only direct east-west option in this part of the country.
