Lightpath now offers 100G services over enhanced long-haul fiber network

March 21, 2023
The wavelength and Ethernet services are available on routes between Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Ashburn, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami.

Lightpath, an all-fiber business connectivity provider owned by U.S. cable MSO Altice USA and investment funds managed by Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners, says it now offers service options of up to 100 Gbps on its long-haul fiber network. The wavelength and Ethernet services are available on routes between Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Ashburn, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami.

The upgraded long-haul fiber network also will serve as the intercity backbone connecting Lightpath’s core markets of New York Metro, Boston Metro, and Miami Metro.

“Many Lightpath customers require powerful connectivity between major cities – connectivity that is reliable as well as easily scalable. This enhanced long-haul network will address those needs, while adding the ability to connect them locally – all in a single bundle from Lightpath, with Lightpath support standing behind it,” commented Chris Morley, CEO of Lightpath. “These long-haul enhancements create a cohesive and powerful long-haul solution that offers customers incredible performance with the highest levels of reliability.”

Miami is the most recent addition to Lightpath’s market footprint (see "Lightpath to offer Miami metro connectivity"). Customers there will have access to the entire Lightpath network of over 20,000 route miles of fiber connecting over 13,500 service locations. The company’s Miami infrastructure will connect diversely to the long-haul network through Atlanta and Dallas.
