Rich Miller: WSJ Highlights Resurgence for Metro Fiber

Today’s Wall Street Journal highlights the activity in the hot market for metro fiber, noting that there have been 14 acquisitions in the industry this year alone and 45 since the fiber market began its turnaround in 2006.

“After the telecom bubble burst a decade ago, fiber was a dirty word,” the Journal writes. “Now, the fiber-optic network business is enjoying a resurgence, particularly for metro fiber, the high-capacity lines that connect a city’s office buildings, data centers and cellular towers to the Internet.”
