Located in Southfield, internet service provider grows throughout state

The Southfield-based internet service provider 123Net continues its rapid pace of expansion. Its business-exclusive Fiber Network is expanding throughout the southeastern Michigan communities of Dearborn, Ferndale, Warren, Oak Park, Auburn Hills, Troy, Novi, Wixom, and Milford.

According to the company, its list of "On-Net" buildings has grown to 760 buildings since June of this year. These buildings count at least one tenant utilizing the fiber network.

In just the last two months, the company says it has "turned up" 84 new circuits, averaging three to four new customers a day.

"As speed and reliability become more and more critical to today’s businesses, dedicated internet access is key to achieving company performance metrics," says Heather Garey, Senior Account Executive at 123Net.

"By utilizing an On-Net Fiber provider, not only will you see dramatic cost savings, but a much faster installation time, allowing pivotal project time frames to be met without any unexpected delays."

The fiber network connects to the company’s data center, the largest, private carrier-neutral data center in Michigan.

123Net celebrated the hiring of its 100th employee in December 2017. The company has previously stated that it plans on growing its employee base by 30 percent every year.

The company unrolled its Smart Hands service in April 2018. With its service, 123Net guarantees customers IT support 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year at each of its four Tier 3, carrier-neutral data centers throughout Michigan. Three of the 123Net data centers are located in Southfield, with the fourth being located in Byron Center.

123Net is headquartered at 24700 Northwestern Hwy. in Southfield.
