Who is Sherpa Fiber?

Sherpa Fiber is a fiber network provider passionate about building 100% open access fiber networks, and we typically target under-served communities with populations between 25,000 – 250,000 residents. We love networks … very fast, reliable, and affordable networks that benefit municipalities, the public, and the internet service providers who serve them.

Sherpa Fiber is a different type of fiber provider because we do not directly provide service to end users with the exception of the municipality government who serves as our anchor customer necessary to “green light” a fiber ring build out. Instead, our role is to finance, build, own, and operate the core fiber ring network in a city, and then lease fiber to the service providers who service enterprise and residential customers.

Community Fiber Announcement

Sherpa Fiber is excited to announce that we have started the process to build fiber rings in up to 10 communities! We are now requesting Community Fiber Discovery submissions from municipalities. By completing this form, we will have the information we need to evaluate the feasibility and cost to build a fiber network in your market. If you are a representative from a local government and would like more information about having Sherpa Fiber build a fiber network in your community, please visit our We Want Fiber page for more information.

Residents of communities looking for more choices for internet service, please visit the Business and Residential page for more information.

If you represent a carrier or service provider who is looking to expand your network footprint cost-effectively, we want to visit with you! This is especially true if you offer Fiber to the Home (FTTH), Gigabit Wireless to the Home, or Small Cell (5G) mobile solutions. Please reach out to us via our Carrier and Service Providers page.
