Overland Park, KS, (June 12, 2023) – KFN is announcing a strategic expansion and investment designed to serve the growing needs of enterprise and data center clients networking requirements. This expansion will benefit a large portion of the Kansas City area. The new route will create a 130-mile fiber ring around the city made possible due to a major agreement formed between KFN and a large-scale technology company in the area. In addition to serving data center clients, KFN is positioned to serve tenants planning to occupy the new technology parks of Golden Plains and Rocky Branch Creek, as well as other industries and enterprises along this expanded fiber footprint.

This build demonstrates KFN’s strategic commitment of enhancing the region’s digital transformation by providing enterprise & data center clients access to robust networking alternatives. Tom Marx, President & CEO, states “This is an important strategic build for KFN for which we are incredibly proud and excited. Connecting and supporting tenants to key technology hubs that are major worldwide brands is a further testament to KFN’s commitment to exceeding customer expectations. This build positions us to reach more customers throughout our network in the region.”

As a central U.S. location, Kansas City is a midpoint that provides critical network connectivity between coastal data centers. Thanks to this major expansion, KFN is well positioned to build upon making KC the most connected region in the U.S. As the company deploys fiber near these key technology parks, businesses will have novel opportunities to connect to the highest level of connectivity available.

KFN’s expansion reinforces recent announcements from the Missouri and Kansas Governor’s offices of establishing their states as rising technology hubs and prime destinations for hightech leaders and innovators alike. Businesses along KFN’s fiber route can be confident they’ll receive the connectivity and bandwidth needed now and required well into the future. Those businesses are encouraged to reach out to KFN at sales@ksfiber.net or 913-213-2930.
