North 6th Agency Named PR Agency Of Record For Allied Fiber
United States’ first integrated, open access, physical layer, network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure engages with N6A to support upcoming initiatives, amplify social media efforts, and expand company’s thought leadership presence within local and national press
NEW YORK, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — North 6(th) Agency (N6A), an award-winning communications agency based in New York City, today announced that it has been named as the PR agency of record (AOR) for Allied Fiber, a company that is building the United States’ first integrated, open access, physical layer, network-neutral colocation and dark fiber superstructure.
N6A will execute a full-service public relations program designed to raise awareness for Allied Fiber’s upcoming initiatives, support the company and its executives at events, tradeshows and speaking engagements, and educate the press on Allied Fiber’s unique position across the national broadband landscape. Specifically, N6A will be providing Allied Fiber with a range of PR and marketing services, including content development, social media management and strategy, marketing audits and assessment reports, media outreach, and more.
“We’re at a pivotal point in our evolution as we make the transition from constructing the first regional-based segment of the Allied Fiber network into an operating business and what we expect will become the first national, open access dark fiber superstructure with dozens of colocation facilities and landing points across the United States,” said Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. “As we gradually make this transition over the coming years, we felt that N6A was an ideal agency partner for our needs. Their expertise and relationships not only within the telecom domain, but also across the national business media and within key regional markets, will be invaluable as we educate everyone on the significance of Allied Fiber’s network, and the positive impact it will have on so many companies, municipalities and communities across the nation.”
With multiple planned colocation facilities and landing points across the United States, Allied Fiber was created to become the first integrated, open access, physical layer, colocation and dark fiber superstructure in the nation. Allied Fiber offers a combined long-haul and multi-access point, short-haul fiber optic system coupled with its own colocation facilities. The Allied Fiber system is designed to link the international subsea cable landing points in to the United States while also providing intermediate access along the route for the inclusion of local networks in to the global network architecture. As each segment is built, the Allied Fiber network enables significantly improved fixed and wireless broadband connectivity, ultimately on a national level, and will have an immeasurable impact on dozens, if not hundreds, of local economies throughout the United States.
According to a recent report published by Information Age Economics (IAE), a $34B-$36B annual investment in U.S. wireless broadband services and infrastructure can lead to cumulative gains in economic growth of $1.2 trillion (between 1.6 percent and 2.2 percent) and jobs (0.2 percent to 0.8 percent) when innovation-related influences, as well as Keynesian effects, are considered.
“The innovation, economic impact, and leadership presence that Allied Fiber represents has all of us at N6A extremely eager to tell their story and educate the masses on their mission,” said Matt Rizzetta, President and CEO of N6A. “We couldn’t be happier to have been chosen as a trusted partner, and to team up with Allied Fiber during this transformational period over the next several years.”
