FirstLight Fiber has extended its dense fiber network further in New York. This expansion project added 36,000 fiber miles into New York’s Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties, and was constructed in direct response to market and customer demand to expand its offerings closer to New York City.  The fiber network is designed to be within close proximity to more than 4,000 cell tower and enterprise locations in order to serve businesses located along the fiber route.

With this expansion, FirstLight’s fiber optic network now spans 260,000 fiber miles throughout five states including New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts and provides diverse connectivity to five FirstLight data centers throughout the region.

FirstLight’s expansion further in New York represents the Company’s continued commitment to provide enterprise level services, delivered via our rich fiber-based infrastructure, to our customers in underserved Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets as well as in surrounding areas,” commented Kurt Van Wagenen, President and Chief Executive Officer of FirstLight. “As one of the world’s leading communications markets, New York is critical to FirstLight’s growth strategy, and our expansion into Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties provides the opportunity for FirstLight to offer businesses in that area the high quality, scalable, fiber-based services they require.”
