In the world of building robust carrier, scalable networks, nobody does it alone. The demand for Fiber is growing exponentially in the rural communities across North America and Conterra is well positioned to support their needs. Partner with Conterra Networks to provide your customers with the available bandwidth they need to enjoy a smooth, seamless mobile experience.

25+ years of company history

Conterra’s foundation was built on supporting the needs of our education system. The initial vision was to bring wide bandwidth connectivity and high-end capabilities to school districts across the country. But as this venture succeeded and our networks grew, we found that enterprise and wireless carriers could also benefit from the same network infrastructure.

Over time, we acquired smaller companies to expand our network and added hundreds of thousands of fiber strand miles in brand new, purpose-built, high-end fiber networks. As our bandwidth capacity widens, so does our ability to serve wireless carriers, enterprise customers of all types, and the wholesale market.

Today, based on optical fiber and fixed wireless network assets, Conterra has grown to be one of the largest independent broadband infrastructure companies in the country. We’re incredibly proud of what we have accomplished so far and can’t wait to see what’s next.

Conterra’s executive team brings years of telecommunications industry experience to the table and our company continues to add talent every year – especially at Conterra’s Corporate Headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

CEO Craig Gunderson feels businesses in Charlotte are uniquely positioned to attract young talent from around the country. “People are moving to Charlotte,” he said. “All the different pieces are here. A great place to live, great place to work, lots of talent, and great businesses in a wonderful place.”

Experience in the carrier space

For nearly two decades, Conterra has served major carriers with wholesale bandwidth solutions encompassing backhaul and long-haul applications. Not only do we own the infrastructure to meet and exceed your network needs, we have experienced teams who understand the unique network and business requirements for backing up major wireline carriers.

To deliver carrier-grade performance and carrier-grade SLAs, Conterra consistently adds new routes and fiber to our owned infrastructure. As new technology becomes available, we quickly upgrade and integrate equipment to improve our services.

As specialists in last mile access for Tier 2,3 and 4+ markets, we understand what it takes to build a strong, mutually-beneficial partnership.
