In 2003, Peter created WV Fiber, a national fiber network specializing in wholesale bandwidth in eighteen U.S. and five EU colocation centers and served as its CEO. WV Fiber’s customers included Charter Cable’s home users in five states, Akamai, and others.
WVFiber bought Usenet Server, as a subsidiary starting with 9,000 clients, building it to 35,000 online customers, and sold it in 2007. When WV Fiber was sold in 2008, its small programming arm was not included in the sale, and later evolved into DevDigital, LLC, which offers Web and application development services.

In 2016, Kernel Equity was launched as a mechanism to invest in projects for education, healthcare, music, e-commerce, and other opportunities. Kernel Equity offers an innovative way for DevDigital to help grow companies that need more than just financing or programming support by providing technical knowledge, development experience, and capital.
