Albany, NY – April 11, 2016 – FirstLight Fiber, a leading fiber-optic bandwidth infrastructure services provider operating in New York and Northern New England, announced today its new partnership with Intelisys Communications, Inc., the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor. This new agreement will give Intelisys’ Sales Partners full access to FirstLight’s complete portfolio of data, Internet, data center and voice services, which are backed by strong, locally-based service and support.
