DC BLOX, a provider of data centers, has acquired the Southeastern fiber assets from Light Source Communications and Ascendant Capital Fiber, including a dark fiber network connecting South Carolina to Georgia that is currently in development.

This acquisition positions DC BLOX as a digital infrastructure and connectivity provider.

“Pete and I are thrilled to join forces with DC BLOX, a company we have long admired that has been leading digital infrastructure enablement throughout the Southeast,” stated Debra Freitas, CEO of Light Source. “This new fiber route will serve hyperscale customers and communications providers who need high-capacity, economical access to Atlanta from cities and counties to the East all the way to the coast. It will also benefit underserved rural areas across South Carolina and Georgia that are working to build out regional broadband networks for their communities.”
