Our Company History

Transtelco’s mission is to connect organizations spanning the U.S. and Mexico.  With this in mind, we started laying miles of fiber-optic cable linking El Paso, Texas to Mexico’s Ciudad Juárez. We then expanded our fiber crossing to include connectivity across the U.S.-Mexico border in California. Then, we further enhanced the El Paso-Juárez network, allowing for even more data connectivity. Over the ensuing decade, we have created additional connections, from Juárez to Chihuahua, Mexico; Laredo, Texas, to Mexico City; El Paso to Dallas. Today, the terabits of data running within our fiber optic network connect organizations of all kinds, from small universities to Fortune 1000 companies.
