ATLANTA, Jan. 15 -- USCarrier Telecom LLC, an Atlanta-based wholesale carrier, announced it has acquired Lightwave LLC, an Alabama-based fiber optic network company. After the asset purchase for the acquisition was approved by the Alabama Public Service Commission, the deal was closed on Dec. 30.

With this transaction, USCarrier will acquire more than 5000 additional fiber miles, SONET and dense wavelength division multiplexing equipment and dark fiber. USCarrier is also purchasing additional points of presence -- from Mobile to Montgomery, Montgomery to Panama City, Panama City to Mobile and Montgomery to Columbus, Ga. This will add to USCarrier's Southeast footprint, for a total 11,800 fiber miles throughout Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

"By acquiring the assets of Lightwave, USCarrier will be able to fully integrate the Alabama/Florida fiber optic network into USCarrier's Georgia network," said Michael S. Layer, president and CEO of USCarrier Telecom. "Additionally, this transaction supports our continuing dedication to network improvements for our customers. We have made significant investments in that network in anticipation of the acquisition."
