ALBANY, NY -- FirstLight Fiber, a facilities-based telecommunications service provider operating in New York and Northern New England, announced today that it 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. In fact, 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.

Exclusively owned and operated by FirstLight, the FirstLight network is designed for ultra-high availability to support today’s business environment. This newly constructed network can support services ranging from Dark Fiber, Ethernet and Wavelength services from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps as well as Internet Access.

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.

I guess first light is not scared to give those customers what verizon fios left in the dark. Like they say the one with the data to the people win over those that wait. Know maybe verizon will have to rethink how they service those people in the towns that like better service.
