In 2014, the amount of commercial buildings soared up to 43%!! This number is four times higher than it was ten years ago and does not seem to be slowing down.

Researchers estimated that a whopping 2 million business are currently using fiber optics! A recent survey showed that respondents saw fiber optic connection as a top competitive advantage. Do you have fiber optics yet?!
On Saturday, February 21 2015, the Arlington county board voted to start selling fiber optic access to federal agencies, businesses, and organizations in the commercial areas. Arlington’s fiber optics were initially built with extra capacity to be sold for economic development.

Roslyn-Ballston corridor, Glebe Road, Columbia Pike, and Crystal city are among the areas that will have access to the fiber optics.
