3Red8 is building America's New Internet Backbone
Our name stands for triple redundant figure 8 network architecture - the holy grail of network engineering.
How can we enable your tomorrow?
Route miles of dark fiber
Phase 1 ready for service
National fiber network route
We are building a national fiber optic network to enable the technology of the future while connecting underserved communities to tomorrow’s technology, today. 3Red8 is a cutting edge transport network, built along new, diverse paths, working with local communities along the way to help close the digital divide.
A network designed to expand and scale to enable the bandwidth intensive applications of the future – 5G/6G, autonomous vehicles, IoT, smart cities and smart agriculture.
The core network will be dark fiber running coast-to-coast and border-to-border across the United States and is designed to grow, evolve and scale to enable Edge Centers, Smart Cities, 5G, Autonomous Vehicles, Smart Agriculture and Smart Macro Grid solutions. It is a diverse, resilient, high-capacity network, with high performance and heightened security.
America hasn’t had an open-access national fiber-optic network built in over 30 years which, as the pandemic uncovered, has created a massive gap in both access and equity to quality internet services.
The development of a new open-access transport network along with six new Internet Exchange Points (IXP) will allow a more economical, lower-priced, connectivity for underrepresented cities and towns, rural, and tribal communities, which account for the most under-connected communities in the country.

The network is a diverse, resilient, high-capacity route, with high performance and security. 3Red8’s goal is to help solve the digital divide through investment in local communities, achieving synchronous 1 Gig broadband for all rural and tribal communities nationwide.
