Northeast’s Premier Metro Fiber Provider Opens New Jersey Presence to Support Surging Demand for Fiber-Based Networking Solutions

BOXBOROUGH, MA–(Marketwire – Feb 28, 2012) – Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier metro fiber and bandwidth service provider in the Northeast, announced today that it has opened a new office at 101 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland, New Jersey. The office will support the increasing demand that Lightower is experiencing in the region for end-to-end fiber networking.

“Lightower’s New Jersey expansion is in direct response to the tremendous demand we’ve received from customers in the Garden State. New Jersey is home to many large enterprises, all of which are experiencing increasing demand for more and more networking bandwidth,” explained Rob Shanahan, CEO of Lightower. “Lightower will continue to invest heavily in markets like New Jersey where businesses continue to seek fiber-based networking solutions for expanded services, additional capacity, and lower latencies.”

Lightower’s New Jersey network now extends from Princeton in the south to Mahwah in the north and to Jersey City in the east. Lightower provides fiber-based networking to commercial buildings, data centers, and telco hotels throughout New Jersey including locations in Piscataway, New Brunswick, Edison, Carteret, Morristown, Parsippany, Patterson, Newark, Westwood, Secaucus, and Hackensack.
