Lightower brings low latency services to 15 NY and NJ locations

Lightower continues to ride the low latency train, and its latest announcement that its services are available in 15 locations throughout New York City and New Jersey reflects that trend.

Targeting the region's financial markets, the new low point to point low latency routes leverage the service provider's optical wavelength technology combined with its diverse fiber routes to the area's main data centers and interconnection facilities.

Available in 1 and 10 Gbps bandwidth levels, financial service companies and other latency sensitive enterprises can purchase a custom configured circuit, which are backed with a strict latency Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Over the past year, a low latency goldrush has emerged with various service providers offering new services targeting the financial community, and Lightower is no different.

Providing fiber access into over 2,700 buildings, over the past year the service provider added another 300 fiber connected buildings in New York metro region, and over 600 buildings throughout its overall Northeast footprint, the service provider built a new fiber cable across the Hudson River, adding a new low-latency route diverse from routes that utilize the Tappan Zee Bridge.  It has also built out its network via targeted acquisitions of service providers like Lexent Metro Connect and Open Access.
