NOVEMBER 2, 2009 -- Lightower Fiber Networks, a metro fiber network and bandwidth service provider serving the northeast United States, says it will expand its all-fiber network in northern New Jersey. The network expansion will add new routes and fiber density plus connectivity to data centers and financial exchanges. It also will provide additional capacity and dark fiber from New York City, through New Jersey, up to the Hudson Valley.

The network expansion will enable customers to access Lightower dark fiber and managed services for high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity in New Jersey data centers, financial exchanges, and office buildings, the carrier says.

This latest Lightower network expansion will increase capacity and dark fiber from New York City, Weehawken, Secaucus, and Carlstadt, through northern New Jersey, up to Mahwah, Sterling Forest, Wappinger Falls, Chappaqua, the Hudson Valley, and the rest of the Lightower footprint including Boston.

Lightower says its customers will have access into and out of these expanded network resources with a full suite of custom-engineered service offerings including dark fiber, Ethernet, wavelengths, IP, and SONET.

"With this network expansion, Lightower has increased connectivity, or added connectivity, to critical financial exchanges, data centers, and commercial buildings in New Jersey. This network expansion demonstrates Lightower's on-going commitment to dark fiber in addition to our managed high-bandwidth services," stated Rob Shanahan, president and CEO of Lightower Fiber Networks. "Lightower can now offer customers lit services and dark fiber solutions in New Jersey as well as solutions connected to other key locations in New York City, Long Island, the Hudson Valley, Boston, or the rest of our footprint."

"With this network expansion, Lightower adds new capacity and dark fiber inventory from New York City west into New Jersey and up into the Hudson Valley. The design complements our existing routes heading east out of New York City to Long Island and to the north into Westchester. This flexibility allows Lightower to custom design competitively diverse routes, fully protected routes, or routes that avoid New York entirely," added Jason Campbell, senior vice president of engineering and operations.
