From Rural to Regional
ITS Fiber is a premier provider of fiber-optic communications services to homes and businesses in Martin County, the Treasure Coast, and beyond. Formerly known as ITS Telecommunications Systems, Inc., ITS Fiber is one of the thirteen original phone companies in Florida. The initial company (ITS Telecom) was incorporated in Indiantown, FL over 60 years ago (1956) and the original roots of the corporation (Indiantown Telephone System) has been providing telecommunication services for over 80 years in Martin County.
Over the years, we consistently stayed on the cutting-edge of telecommunications. In the early 1980’s ITS upgraded to a digital switch system and in the 1990’s we were the first phone company in the U.S. to use the Siemens Vision One Up enhancement technology. Additionally, our company has utilized fiber-optic technology in our network for more than 25 years. From 2010-2012, we did a fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) overbuild of our prior underground network in Indiantown. This lead the way for us to become the first telecommunications company in Martin County, and in South Florida, to offer symmetric broadband with speeds up to 1 Gigabit (1000 Mbps) to both residents and businesses, rivaling larger national competitors.
Current CEO, Jeff Leslie, purchased the company in 2010 and created both the vision and momentum to move us forward as an technology company by expanding ITS Fiber services to businesses in Eastern Martin County and the opening of the ITS Fiber Data Center in May 2013. The ITS Fiber Data Center is a commercial colocation facility which has completed its seventh consecutive SOC 2® Type 2 examination for Trust Services Criteria.
Today, ITS Fiber provides not only fiber-optic based voice and broadband, but data center, virtual (cloud), and other managed IT services to many of Martin County’s most prestigious companies including government, hospitals, manufacturers, retailers, IT companies, car dealerships, schools, and various other industries. Our company continues to expand into St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee, and Northern Palm Beach Counties and our Hosted PBX Cloud Voice product has grown to include providing voice service in twelve different states.
