FirstLight Fiber has completed its purchase of G4 Communications’ assets.
The deal was announced in late August; its terms were not disclosed because both service providers are privately held.
The FirstLight-G4 pairing makes sense, as both companies are headquartered, and serve customers, in the northeastern United States. Adding G4’s client base and New Hampshire data center expands FirstLight’s reach and holdings. Indeed, thanks to the G4 acquisition, FirstLight now operates five data centers.
“The G4 assets, paired with FirstLight’s existing network and capabilities, strengthen our presence in New Hampshire and will translate to higher quality service and support for our customers,” said Kurt Van Wagenen, president and CEO of FirstLight.
FirstLight says its network spans 190,000 fiber miles throughout Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. The company targets wholesale and business users, many of which operate in vertical markets including health care, finance, government and education.
