Cox Communications is taking over fibre operator Unite Private Networks, in a buy-out with the company's management and Ridgemont Equity Partners. UPN provides dark and lit fibre, Ethernet and other high-bandwidth services over a 6,200 route mile fibre network that connects to 3,750 on-net buildings across 20 states, primarily in the central US. Cox said that fibre infrastructure is an attractive long-term investment, especially in underserved markets. UPN will be led by its existing management team and operate as a stand-alone business within the Cox group. No financial details of the deal
