BOXBOROUGH, MA — June 21, 2017Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier provider of all-fiber, high-performance networking solutions delivered over its own network, announced its initiative to strengthen its all-fiber connectivity to Cable Landing Stations across the Eastern Seaboard. By leveraging Lightower’s customizable, all-fiber networking solutions, carriers, content providers, service providers, international and U.S.-based companies can easily connect to and from critical cable landing stations and strategic networking hubs.

“Lightower’s high capacity connectivity within key cable landing stations allow organizations endless international connectivity options,” commented Phil Olivero, CTO for Lightower. “From these cable landing stations, organizations can leverage Lightower’s geographically diverse network paths across the Northeast, including its multiple crossings from Manhattan to NJ as an alternate route in highly congested areas, as well as our unique Transcom route, which utilizes a unique path, diverse of the I-95 corridor, between New York City and Washington D.C.”
