Independents Fiber Network Expands Fiber Optics in Northwest Ohio

Wapakoneta, Ohio —- Independents Fiber Network, the leading provider of high-capacity network services for Northwest and Central Ohio, completed a network expansion into the Wood, Lucas, Williams, and Fulton County areas of Northwest Ohio. Independents Fiber Network provides high-capacity network services that deliver reliable performance to public entities, enterprises and communication providers throughout the area.

“Independents Fiber Network’s investment in Northwest Ohio will enable area businesses to connect quickly and efficiently, expanding their communication horizons and laying the foundation for dynamic growth”, stated Tim Berelsman, CEO of Independents Fiber Network. “As part of our fiber build-out, we have established a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in the vicinity of Maumee Ohio. Our Maumee PoP provides geographic diversity with routes that bypass the city, allowing for critical diversity outside of the congestion of the central business district of Toledo.”
