Cell Tower Backhaul: The Wire Behind Wireless


Cell tower backhaul is not a term you hear every day. But for anyone who uses a wireless device or tablet, it’s a critical part of the network that ensures your phone calls are clear, data is readily accessible and videos play without buffering.

Cell tower backhaul is the use of fiber-optic cable to connect cell towers together so they can talk to each other. Since 2008, Spectrum Enterprise has connected thousands of these towers, nationally by working with many of the major wireless companies. In fact, we’re quickly approaching 20,000 cell towers and it’s one of the many success stories behind the growth of Spectrum Enterprise.
