FPL FiberNet’s fiber-optic network was originally developed in the late 1980s by Florida Power & Light Company to provide internal telecommunications services to support company operations. In 1996, FPL began selling excess fiber-optic capacity along its network to the major telecommunications companies operating in Florida. FPL FiberNet acquired an existing 1,600-mile inter-city fiber network from FPL. The company was launched in early 2000 to sell fiber-optic network capacity and dark fiber on a wholesale basis to local and long-distance telephone companies, Internet service providers and other telecommunications companies in Florida. Since its inception, FPL FiberNet has invested millions of dollars to build its fiber-optic network throughout Florida’s major metropolitan areas with state-of-the-art optical networking and Ethernet equipment. In 2009, FPL FiberNet extended its network footprint into Atlanta. In 2011, FPL FiberNet acquired the wholesale network of Grande Communications Network, LLC. Grande’s carrier-grade network assets expanded FPL FiberNet’s coverage by adding approximately 2,900 miles of long-haul network. The network connects many of the major cities in Texas including Dallas, San Antonio and Houston with additional connectivity to Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
