Lightower wraps up New Hampshire fiber network expansion

Lightower has put another brick in its New England fiber network house with the completion of its 65-mile southern New Hampshire network expansion.

With this expansion, Lightower's network will be able to serve both businesses and even wireless operators needing alternative wireless backhaul services in a number of New Hampshire towns and cities, including Salem, Manchester, Merrimack, Nashua and other neighboring southern New Hampshire towns.

Although the fiber footprint is quite extensive in New Hampshire its fiber-based Ethernet, wavelength, Internet access, SONET and collocation services will be available in its on-net buildings and facilities.

The completion of the New Hampshire network expansion reflects an ongoing drive by the service provider to expand its network presence in the Northeast U.S. market, including New England, New York and New Jersey, through organic growth initiatives and targeted acquisitions of other fiber-rich providers. In New England alone, the service provider not only purchased the assets of the former Veroxity, but also established a fiber fiber lease agreement with NSTAR Communications, giving it instant metro access to the lucrative Boston, Mass. market.
