GPC Extends 400-Gig Fiber Route from Omaha to Denver

Great Plains Communications (GPC), the Midwestern digital infrastructure provider with a growing, privately owned 16,500-plus mile fiber network, announced the completion of its 400-Gig, high-capacity route between Omaha, Neb., and Denver.

The upgrade increases the route capacity to 400-Gig wave service between the 1623 Farnam Data Center in Omaha and the 910 Telecom Data Center in Denver. Carrier, wholesale, enterprise, hyperscalers and fiber to the tower (FTTT) customers will benefit from the scalability and cost savings provided by four times higher bandwidth per RU than 100G services.

“The advent of 5G, cloud services and enterprises embarking on digital transformations means the bandwidth demands on the network increase exponentially,” said Tony Thakur, chief technology officer of Great Plains Communications. “At GPC we are committed to ensuring our network meets both the current and future bandwidth capacity demands of our customers.”

Great Plains Communications is currently accepting orders for the following 400-Gig routes:

  • Between Omaha, Nebraska and Denver, Colorado
  • Between Omaha, Nebraska and Kansas City, Kansas
