NEON Communications Inc. (Booth 115), a carrier’s carrier in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, has lit a new route from New York City to Washington, D.C.
The Westborough, Mass., company says it has a physically diverse fiber-optic network complementing its existing network in the mid-Atlantic. In September, NEON acquired Columbia Transmission Communications Corp.
The new route accelerates NEON’s plans to build into Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities south of New York, the company says. NEON says it has added 27 new locations along the route, from ILEC central offices to carrier hotels to enterprise customer facilities in such cities as Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., as well as northern New Jersey and Virginia.
NEON emerged from bankruptcy in December 2002.
