Lightower acquires two fiber-based ISPs

Lightower Fiber, the recently anointed fiber subsidiary of New England firm Lightower LLC, said it is acquiring two fiber-based ISPs, DataNet Communications Group and KeySpan Communications. The deals will expand Lightower Fiber regionally, but the KeySpan acquisition also includes that company's rights to three trans-Atlantic cable routes from New York to Paris and London.

Lightower formerly was known as National Grid Wireless, but M/C Venture Partners and Wachovia Capital Partners acquired the company last year and changed its name to Lightower. The Boxborough, Mass. firm then split its operation into two units, Lightower Fiber and Lightower Wireless.
