JERICHO, N.Y.-- Lightpath, a market leader in Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York metropolitan area businesses, today announced that its expansive 100 percent fiber network now connects more than 7,000 locations and spans more than 5,800 fiber route miles. The latest adds, almost half of which include locations in New Jersey, represent ongoing efforts by Lightpath to bring fast, high-quality and reliable telecommunications services to more mid-market organizations. In the past year, more than 1,000 new locations have been brought onto the company’s network.
More medium-sized businesses are supporting cloud applications, mobile devices, video conferencing services and other bandwidth-intensive activities. This is especially true for the professional services market that spans business services, engineering, accounting, finance, insurance, real estate and law. These businesses increasingly need help supporting critical IT services, such as voice, collaboration, WiFi and backup, as the latest feature sets and capabilities drive management complexities. Lightpath responds with an evolving lineup of managed services that add significant value to the company’s core Internet and voice offerings.
“Lightpath is bringing more services, value and cutting-edge connectivity to more businesses as it expands ever further into key regions that need a powerful fiber network to support increasing demands,” said Julia McGrath, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for Lightpath. “With one of the densest fiber networks in the country, Lightpath is helping to ensure that more businesses than ever are positioned to capitalize on a range of new opportunities, driving success.”
