Vexus Fiber to Build New Fiber Optic Broadband Network for the Alexandria Pineville LA Area

Telecom Tech Outlook | Friday, May 13, 2022

Fremont, CA: Vexus Fiber, a leading fiber service provider in Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico confirms that it plans to bring its 100 percent fiber-to-the-home network to the cities of Alexandria and Pineville. Vexus Fiber will fully fund the network, which will provide symmetrical multi-gigabit internet service to residents and businesses.

Vexus Fiber intends to start construction later this year and connect nearly 25,000 homes and businesses to its all-fiber network. The region's network is expected to be completed in 36 months.

"A city's high-speed broadband infrastructure will be as important in this century as roads and bridges were in the last century," remarked Mayor Jeffrey Hall of Alexandria. "We are excited our residents will have increased options for access to high-speed broadband in our community."

"We welcome the addition of Vexus Fiber into Central Louisiana," stated Mayor Clarence Fields of Pineville. "One thing I have learned about the telecommunications industry is that it is constantly changing, and Vexus seems to be the kind of company that has the personnel and the desire to meet those ever-changing demands. Vexus caters to more mid-sized cities like Pineville, and that's why I see their business model being very successful."

Pamlico Capital and Oak Hill Capital, two existing Vexus Fiber investors, have agreed to invest additional equity as part of their ongoing commitment to Vexus' growth and the communities they serve.

Vexus Fiber currently operates fiber-to-the-home networks in Texas' Lubbock, Amarillo, Wichita Falls, Abilene, and surrounding areas, as well as Louisiana's Hammond, Covington, and Mandeville areas. In addition, new networks are being built in Lake Charles, Louisiana; Tyler, the Rio Grande Valley, and San Angelo, Texas; and Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
