Wilcon Expands Fiber into Hollywood

Wilcon announced plans to expand its fiber optic network footprint in Hollywood with a new strategic build through the core of the Hollywood Media District.

With the evolving demands of post-production and content delivery, Wilcon is positioning itself to empower media and entertainment firms to grow their businesses with access to affordable and powerful high speed internet, dark fiber and lit transport capabilities. Combining these services with Wilcon’s Los Angeles-based data centers and interconnection capabilities creates a comprehensive digital network solution that can be customized for every company, says Wilcon.

“Wilcon’s fiber development plan in Hollywood is a welcomed investment in our business community and will enhance our ability to support innovative start-ups and attract the emerging digital technology firms that drive Hollywood’s future growth,” Steven Whiddon, Executive Director of the Hollywood Media District, stated. “What makes the Media District so interesting is the mix of historic and new creative office spaces that are desired by this new media and entertainment community. The Media District is poised to become a hotbed of creative energy and new business opportunity in Los Angeles.”

“Expanding our network in Hollywood, the heart of the Los Angeles digital media economy, is a natural progression for our growth in Southern California,” according to Jon DeLuca CEO of Wilcon. “The media and entertainment industries are major drivers of the tremendous growth in bandwidth usage. This is just one of many strategic builds that we are planning to keep pace with the increasing demands for ultra-broadband network services in the Southern California region.”
