Lightower Fiber Networks, a metro fiber network and bandwidth service provider, announced two new network expansion projects in the northern New York Metro Region. The first will add new fiber between New Haven, Conn., and Stamford, Conn.; the second expansion will add a new route between Westchester County, N.Y., and New York City.
The routes will offer customers in the area access to all Lightower services, including low-latency routes into and around New York City and New Jersey.
As part of the Connecticut expansion, services will be expanded along the I-95 Corridor between Stamford and New Haven, including Norwalk, Bridgeport, and Milford. New York services will also be expanded between Yonkers and the Bronx, including Mt. Vernon, Bronxville, and Hastings. Both expansions will expand the availability of dark fiber along these routes.
“We’re excited to continue our rapid expansion throughout the greater New York Metro Region,” notes Rob Shanahan, president and CEO, Lightower. “These particular network expansions add more diversity and low-latency options for customers in Westchester and Southern Connecticut who need networking to New York City, New Jersey, and Long Island.”
Lightower continues to build and acquire assets in the New York Metro Region which build on other recent network expansions in Greenwich, Conn.; White Plains, N.Y.; and across the Hudson River.
Lightower’s New York and Connecticut network expansions offer area businesses the following features:
End-to-end all-fiber networking solutions
Ethernet services from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps
Wavelength services to 40 Gbps
Dark fiber availability
Diverse routing and diverse point-of-entry options available in some locations

Customers located in the new expansion areas will now be able to leverage Lightower’s end-to-end fiber networking systems to connect to any other service location within Lightower’s footprint, including New Jersey, Long Island, the Hudson Valley, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.
