Featured Business of the Month

PenTeleData’s Fiber Optic Network uses pulses of light to deliver billions of bits of data per second for many important transactions, including the transmission of medical records, completion of ATM and credit card transactions, online research, government communications, wireless cellular towers, and much more.  They began in 1994 with the idea of providing high-speed data and Internet connectivity in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 1995, that vision came true.   Their strategic partnership of local communications companies includes Blue Ridge Communications, Ironton Telephone, Service Electric Cable TV & Communications and Service Electric Cablevision.  The PenTeleData partners cover a 28-county area in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and offer the latest in enhanced interactive digital television services and telephone.

Since that time, the PenTeleData has invested more than $300 million in fiber optic infrastructure, with nearly 10,000 miles of fiber optic cabling and 60 nodes for diversity and redundancy.  They have private peering agreements with major national content providers and cache servers to reduce network congestion and interconnect agreements that allow them to expand their footprint to serve multiple locations.  One of PenTeleData’s greatest assets is being locally owned - it allows them to make decisions faster and support their customers better.  They pride themselves on the ability to adapt their services to meet the specific needs of any company and they also offer business phone services, which are powered by their privately-owned network.
