Featured Business of the Month
PenTeleData was founded in 1994 with the purpose of providing affordable Internet access via a fast fiber optic network. Our partnership includes local cable and telephone companies, including Service Electric Cable TV and Communications, Service Electric Broadband Cable, Service Electric Cablevision, Ironton Telephone, Palmerton Telephone and Blue Ridge Communications.
Together, we serve 28 counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with nearly 10,000 miles of fiber optic cabling, 60 nodes for diversity and redundancy, and more than $300 million in fiber optic infrastructure, all backed by our 24/7 Network Control Center. In addition, we have private peering agreements with major national content providers and cache servers to reduce network congestion. Interconnect agreements allow us to expand our footprint to serve multiple locations. We are proud to serve customers in all facets of life, from their homes to businesses, including banking, health care, education, government, retail sales and the wireless industry.
One of our greatest assets is being locally owned - it allows us to make decisions faster and support our customers better. We don’t outsource support and since we own one of Pennsylvania’s largest privately-owned fiber optic networks, we have a lot of leverage to deploy reliable, scalable fiber-based solutions, including Cloud Based Voice Services. We pride ourselves on our ability to adapt their services to meet the specific needs of any company.
