Lightpath Expands to 6K Locations
JERICHO, NY -- Lightpath, the business services unit of Cablevision Systems which provides Ethernet services to medium and large market businesses in the New York metropolitan area, has expanded its network to 6,000 fiber-lit locations.
The Lightpath network now spans 5,442 fiber route miles, and has more than doubled in size in just six years. That has allowed the company to deliver an expanding portfolio of Internet, voice, data, video and managed services to customers across a broad range of industries.
The latest network milestone for Lightpath follows the rapid expansion of the company’s product portfolio. In the past eighteen months, the company has rolled out Conference Bundle, Managed WiFi, Managed Backup, Uncompressed HD Managed Transport and Private Service, while debuting tailored services suites for healthcare and government.
"Lightpath continues to benefit from extending its expansive fiber network to office buildings in and around the greater New York City metro area," said Brian Washburn, Service Director, Business Network and IT Services, Current Analysis. "As Lightpath rounds the 6,000 lit locations milestone, the company is increasingly bringing the high-bandwidth and competitive pricing benefits of fiber to more mid-market businesses and multi-tenant buildings, including at the lower end of the market.”
