FirstLight Fiber Installs Point of Presence at 325 Hudson

New York, NY (January 13, 2015) 325 Hudson, the rising Carrier Hotel and Meet Me Room in New York  City, welcomes FirstLight Fiber, a facilities-based  telecommunications service provider operating in Upstate New York and Northern  New England,  to its growing customer  list. 325 Hudson will  serve as FirstLight’s primary Point of Presence (PoP) in New York City, allowing  carrier and enterprises full access to FirstLight’s fiber optic network to  expand their overall network reach.

A leading  provider of high speed data, Internet, colocation and voice services to  enterprise and carrier customers in New York, New Hampshire, Vermont,  Massachusetts and Maine, FirstLight provides up to 100 Gbps. connectivity at most  of its 1,600 on-net locations, and has the ability to connect to 10,000 near-net  locations.  FirstLight’s network is strategically  connected to key gateway cities, such as New York City, Boston and Montreal to  enable businesses located in Tier 2-4 markets to have the same level of access  they would if they were located in Tier 1 cities.

“New York City is key  to our interconnection strategy because it is among the world’s top  communications hubs,” commented James Capuano, Chief of Network  Operations.  “FirstLight’s growth has  necessitated the need for a greater presence in New York City and locating our  PoP at 325 Hudson was a natural choice since it enables convenient access to  the major regional, national and international carriers that we work with,”  commented James Capuano, Chief of Network Operations for FirstLight Fiber.

“The deployment of FirstLight at 325 Hudson  allows FirstLight to offer new levels of performance in terms of speed to  market and an ability to raise awareness of the impressive fiber network they  own and operate,” added Hunter Newby, Joint Venture Partner at 325 Hudson. “It also gives FirstLight a true  neutral alternative in New York City, and the ability to connect their partners  throughout Upstate New York and Northern New England.”
