Lightower opens office in Boston's financial district

Lightower Fiber Networks has opened a new office in Boston, Mass. to capitalize on new network and business opportunities it is looking to serve in the Boston metro area.

Set in the heart of the Boston financial district at 260 Franklin Street, the new office complements its recent addition of NSTAR Communications fiber network, an agreement that increased its fiber network reach and density in not only downtown Boston, but also the greater Boston area, including the Route 128 business district.

Establishing an office in Boston makes sense. Having already built out a fiber backbone and related last-mile fiber access into commercial buildings throughout the city, the Boston office will put Lightower's technical and sales personnel in closer proximity to not only high end financial customers, but also health care and education.

"Businesses in so many industries, including Boston's prominent finance, health care, and education sectors, are facing enormous increases in their needs for more bandwidth and faster networking," said Rob Shanahan, CEO of Lightower in a release announcing the opening.
