360networks helps rural-based Frontier TeleNet expand network footprint

360networks' middle mile provider drive continues to bear customer fruit as it signs a deal to provide Oregon-based Frontier TeleNet with fiber connectivity for eight rural communities.

The middle mile fiber connectivity from 360networks will serve as a backhaul mechanism for Frontier TeleNet's licensed microwave and wireless broadband network, which it is using to provide services to school districts, hospitals, police, and emergency services.  

As a partnership between Gilliam, Sherman and Wheeler counties and Oregon's North Central Education Service District, Frontier TeleNet's agreement with 360networks will expand its middle mile network from about 4,000 square miles to 20,660 square miles in rural and frontier rural Oregon.
