PAETEC Holding Corp. has completed its acquisition of privately-owned Cavalier Telephone Corp.
PAETEC, headquartered in Perinton, now has more than 36,700 total fiber-route miles, including 10,600 metro fiber-route miles, and 1,178 collocations to support connectivity to enterprise businesses nationwide.
Through cooperation with the FCC and a significant number of state regulatory agencies, the company was able to close the acquisition 12 weeks from the initial announcement on Sept. 13.
As part of the transaction, PAETEC acquired Cavalier’s wholly owned subsidiary, Intellifiber Networks Inc. Intellifiber includes a high capacity fiber network spanning approximately 16,600 route miles and representing more than $2 billion of investment by companies Cavalier acquired over the last decade.
The 11,947 route-mile intercity network spans the Midwest and Eastern U.S., as well as 4,681 route miles throughout several existing PAETEC metro areas, allowing for broad connectivity options for customers. Intellifiber offers scalable network solutions for service provider, enterprise, and government customers including private networks, low latency routing, SONET services, wavelengths, Ethernet and data options.
Additional information about the transaction will be in PAETEC’s current report on Form 8-K to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
