Phonoscope offers Houston’s largest network. Phonoscope has always been a communications leader, devoted to keeping Houston on the leading edge for businesses. We launched our first Gigabit service in 2006, making Phonoscope a pioneer in high-speed business connectivity. Today, we have grown to be the largest privately owned metro fiber-optic network provider in Houston – and in the nation.

Our expansive, all fiber-optic footprint provides over 5,000 miles of fiber routes in the Houston area alone to help you scale your business. We also connect you nationwide, with 23,000 miles of pure fiber backbone with redundant rings, providing you with the fastest and most reliable internet speeds available anywhere.

Founded in 1952 by Texan natives W.T. Carter, Jesse Jones, and Lee Cook, Phonoscope has been bringing innovation to Houston for six and a half decades. From the creation of the Phonoscope instrument in 1954 (a forerunner of video conferencing) to becoming NASA’s first cable-TV provider in 1963, to installing an unprecedented 80-mile private fiber ring for Exxon in 1985, Phonoscope has always been out ahead. Today, we are proud of our status as the city’s first and largest fiber company.
