Ledcor is expanding our ongoing fiber-to-the-locations U.S. business (FTTB) project for XO Communications, after they announced a major expansion of their backbone long-haul fiber network to connect about 7,000 buildings across the U.S.
XO selected Ledcor to act as general contractor in nine of the largest markets. Our scope includes permitting, engineering, outside plant construction, inside plant construction, and equipment installation.
To date, Ledcor has been assigned over 1000 buildings to manage in nine different markets. This program is scheduled to connect over 10,000 buildings across the US. As part of this program, XO Communications enguaged Ledcor to support in the immediate delivery of 66 site surveys across 33 states in less than 96 hours.
This infrastructure investment positions XO Communications to reduce their reliance on local phone companies, improving profitability as well as the robustness, speed, and scale of their network.
Similarly, Ledcor’s move into these major US markets positions us to expand our regional coverage with a whole range of communications and technical services.
