Dark-fibre infrastructure that gives you unrestricted connectivity between core sites, branch sites, or aggregation nodes.

Peregrine is the foundation of our dark-fibre network. Our network footprint in metro areas and smaller towns is extensive. This means that you can connect almost any site to another using the most reliable and unimpeded communications technology available today.


Peregrine lets you connect one site to another using your own transmission equipment. You can use it to construct your own nationwide communications network, and in turn put your services within reach of your customers. While Peregrine is mainly for unlimited backhaul and long-haul connectivity, you can also choose our rate-monitored dark fibre service called Calypte, or provide last-mile connectivity to your customers’ sites using our short-haul unlimited dark fibre called Helios.
