Tech Ridge teaming up with Centracom to provide FTTP for Modern Urban Center
ST. GEORGE — Tech Ridge, an innovative urban mixed-use development, and CentraCom, a LICT corporation, and Utah’s leading fiber-based carrier, have announced their partnership to integrate highspeed fiber into Tech Ridge’s office, retail, and residential offerings.
Tech Ridge is committed to providing the Tech Ridge community with the highest quality internet service available. To accomplish this, Tech Ridge needed a technology partner with the ability to build and maintain a world-class network that would provide the services and scalability that top tech companies require. After a thorough vetting process, Tech Ridge selected CentraCom not only based on its best-in-class services, but also its experience working with large enterprises, financial strength, and willingness to invest in the St. George community through charitable contributions and service projects.
“Tech Ridge Development continues to advance the design and development of its tech center,” said David Nilsson, general managing of Tech Ridge. “It’s paramount that the internet services provided on Tech Ridge are of the highest quality to facilitate an environment where tech companies will prosper, and their employees will thrive.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for CentraCom to be introduced to the St. George area to demonstrate our first-class services,” said Brad Welch, COO of CentraCom, “We are excited to be part of this great community. Working with Tech Ridge will be a significant opportunity to continue our growth and development in the state of Utah.”
Elevated Networks, an IT consulting and managed services company, was instrumental in solidifying this partnership.
