The initial fiber ring was leased from NSTAR Communications, a subsidiary of one of New England's largest utilities, and spans 30 fiber mi with the capacity to handle thirty-two OC-48 or eight OC-192 line rates. Veroxity plans to acquire an additional 500 fiber mi in Massachusetts over the next twelve months.

The completion of Veroxity's metro fiber ring enables Veroxity to reach over 100 commercial office buildings, telecommunication central offices and carrier nodes in and around Boston.

Veroxity is the provider of choice for businesses that require absolutely no interruption in their data communications.

"We're pleased to provide customers like Veroxity with their fiber capacity," says Michael Cooper, director of network development at NSTAR Communications. "Our robust network is why telecommunications companies, hospitals, universities and large business customers choose us."
