Lightower wraps up Veroxity purchase

Competitive service provider Lightower has completed its acquisition of Veroxity Technology Partners, a provider of fiber based data and Internet connectivity.

Lightower's acquisition comes with a number of benefits. Not only will Lightower immediately expand its fiber footprint and customer base in the Boston metro market, but also expand its New England and New York City network presence and national long haul network that connects major U.S. cities.

Specifically, Lightower will add 2,000 network route miles to its current 4,500 network route mile network and fiber connectivity into major data centers and commercial buildings. In total, the combined Lightower network will cover over 6,500 network route miles with service to over 2,000 commercial buildings.

While the Veroxity purchase is its most recent deal, Lightower is no stranger to the acquisitions game. Currently owned by both M/C Venture Partners and Pamlico Capital, Lightower previously acquired both DataNet Communications and Keyspan Communications in 2008.
