EXTEND YOUR NETWORK CAPACITY

Supported by Tilson’s real-estate entitlement, engineering, construction, and operational capabilities, Tilson Infrastructure develops, owns, and commercializes dark fiber by leasing capacity to carriers and wireless broadband/internet service providers. We collaborate with State DOT’s, Utility, Energy and organizations requiring design, build, operation and commercialization of dark fiber to generate new revenue for their organizations throughout the U.S.
