Continual Expansion in the Midwest

Horizon Acquires Infinity Fiber, Expands Midwest Footprint

At Horizon, we’re on a mission to deliver high-quality, customizable fiber builds to a growing number of customers, ensuring they can meet evolving mission-critical requirements. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re expanding! Horizon recently acquired Infinity Fiber, LLC, which continues our strategic expansion in the Midwest. The deal brings additional data center connectivity and fiber infrastructure in downtown Indianapolis and Bloomington, Indiana, and the extended network is planned to be ready for services in Q2.

This acquisition is a game changer for Horizon’s presence in Indiana. Infinity Fiber’s 450 route miles of long-haul fiber strengthens Horizon’s 4,500 miles of existing fiber infrastructure in the region. As a result, we will be able to better serve our wholesale and carrier partners with a unique fiber route from Columbus, Ohio, through Indianapolis to Chicago. The fiber route ties back to Horizon’s fiber backbone in Columbus, Ohio. Our customers can leverage speeds up to 400 Gbps — and soon 800 Gbps — across Horizon’s entire network, including connectivity to Chicago and intermediate data centers. Furthermore, we’ll be able to offer downtown Indianapolis enterprise customers direct cloud connectivity, Internet, Ethernet, and Hosted Voice products over our first-class fiber network.

“Horizon is excited about acquiring Infinity Fiber to further cement our market expansion plan for Indiana,” said Jim Capuano, Chief Executive Officer for Horizon. “The Infinity network complements our existing fiber assets in the Indianapolis market while also providing native connectivity to the region’s data centers. The combined network assets accelerate our plans for Indiana significantly. Our aggressive strategy for expansion and innovation is what has made us a premier fiber-optic broadband partner, and we continue to take the next steps to grow our high-quality, highly reliable services across the Midwest.”

The digital world isn’t slowing down, so neither are we. We are excited to continue to grow Horizon’s fiber infrastructure footprint across the Midwest and deliver customized, cutting-edge network solutions to carriers, government, healthcare, and enterprise business customers in our communities.
