GRUCom has been providing local access, interoffice transport, interLATA connectivity, central office, and tower co-location services to wireline and wireless carriers for nearly 25 years.
The first Personal Communications Service (PCS) networks in Alachua County were built over the GRUCom backbone and transmitted from GRUCom-owned tower sites.
Our extensive network spans across the Gainesville/352 and Jacksonville/386 local access and transport areas (LATA) in Alachua County; and, GRUCom maintains licensing through the Florida Public Service Commission as both a Competitive Local Exchange Company (CLEC) and Alternate Access Vendor (AAV).
GRUCom provides co-location opportunities in prime locations throughout the Gainesville area. Our portfolio of assets includes 11 communication towers and two elevated water tanks. All sites feature GRUCom fiber-optic connectivity with options for access, backhaul, aggregation, and interconnection services across our expansive network.
With nearly 1000 route miles of fiber deployed throughout Alachua County, spanning two LATAs, and providing on-net access to almost 100 wireline and wireless telecommunications facilities, GRUCom provides the area’s largest, densest, and most comprehensive fiber optic footprint.
GRUCom offers lit fiber services to hundreds of locations throughout the Gainesville and Alachua County area. Our Carrier Ethernet and SONET backhaul solutions provide carrier-grade reliability, ring-protected route diversity, and ultra-high bandwidth transport capacity across the area’s largest all-fiber-optic network.
