Customers have the option to choose from a 1Gig, 10Gig, or Dark Fiber solution, delivered over a private, low-latency network to the campus.

"Commercial businesses and government organizations choose BYTEGRID for the location, high security and broad range of connectivity solutions we offer," said Don Goodwin, EVP of Sales & Marketing, BYTEGRID. "The 24/7 Mid-Atlantic network and related IP services are key additions to Maryland Connect as we look to help customers extend their reach, provide choice and expand business opportunities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region."
