City leans on longstanding partnership to bring fiber network to more metro infrastructure

DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES , April 3, 2024 / — The Aurora (Illinois) City Council this week approved spending more than a million dollars with Downers Grove-based National Technologies (NTI), a Network Connex Company, for projects expanding the city’s fiber optic network. Following an initial project begun in 2022, this move will accelerate fiber expansion to water lift stations and wells. NTI has been Aurora’s fiber provider since 2018, and according to a memo from city staff, the company “has exceeded expectations” during the life of this partnership. The planned 2024 work, which entails running new fiber routes as well as field repair and maintenance of the existing fiber network, is a significant step towards improved communication infrastructure for the city.

NTI President & COO, Lewis Kessler, recognized the strong relationship the NTI Chicago team led by Rick Danca has had with Aurora noting, “this incredible fiber team, along with Project Manager Chad Peterson, has done a tremendous job delivering high quality work for Aurora and the new contract extending our long-term partnership is a testament to their ability to put the customer first.”

The 2024 projects total about $1.36 million in fiber installation and repair work.
