InfoHighway Communications Corp. this week launched OnLight Internet Service throughout parts of New York.
The service offers Internet access via fiber optics, with speeds up to 100mbps, according to the company. It initially has been deployed at the Woolworth Building at 223 Broadway in New York, 10 Exchange Place in Jersey City and other properties.
While InfoHighway is selling OnLight through its direct sales teams, the companys channel partners also can offer the service. For example, if an agent has an account located in one of the buildings equipped with OnLight, they can sell the service, according to InfoHighway.
“Our customers have been asking for higher speeds at an affordable rate and also for complete diversity from their existing carriers,” said Guy H. Lupi, InfoHighway’s vice president of network operations. “OnLight Internet Access is based on a direct fiber connection to the building. Customers have a completely dedicated and separate infrastructure from their current or previous providers.
The service is delivered to subscribers via a plug-and-play Ethernet interface, so no additional hardware investment is required. Bandwidth upgrades only require a software change.
OnLight service costs $999 per month for 10mbps
