Staff report

WAPAKONETA — Independents Fiber Network, the leading provider of high-capacity network services, operating in Northwest Ohio, Northeast Indiana, and Southern Michigan, recently completed a network expansion into Steuben, Allen and DeKalb counties in Indiana with return paths to its Northwest Ohio regional network via Paulding and Williams counties.

Independents Fiber Network provides high-capacity network services to public entities, enterprises and communication providers throughout the region.

“The opening of our points of presence (POPs) in Northeastern Indiana is an exciting development that further demonstrates our commitment to the communities in which we serve,” said CEO Tim Berelsman. “With this deployment, we are placing two new Indiana POPs on our route in the cities of Angola and Auburn. Independents Fiber Network is working with local providers located in Steuben and DeKalb counties who want path-diverse connectivity from a carrier-class provider to avoid a single point of failure.”

Independents Fiber Network has a history of providing fiber broadband in some of the most rural parts of Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. It currently provides commercial services in 31 Ohio counties, three counties in southeast Michigan and six eastern Indiana counties.
