Apart from investing in network establishment, these companies are also inclined towards using dark fiber networks on lease. Since 2016, Google Fiber has been actively looking to purchase dark fiber and use them to provide internet service. Apart from business organizations and internet providers, educational institutes too form an important end-user of dark fiber in North America. Asia Pacific is set to be the fastest growing market for dark fiber networks in the following years. Japan, China, South Korea and Australia are among the countries having high penetration of fiber optic networks.
