Lightower Completes 1,100-Mile Fiber Expansion

Lightower Fiber Networks has completed a 1,100-mile expansion of its wholesale and enterprise network throughout Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro region, to serve enterprises, educational institutions, carriers, government organizations and military customers..

In August 2013, Lightower first announced construction of more than 1,100 route miles of fiber network blanketing most of Virginia and into North Carolina. Lightower separately added over 400 route miles of network in the Washington, D.C. Metro region, including parts of northern Virginia and the Maryland suburbs. The D.C. Metro portion was completed in April 2014.

“At Lightower, we believe in bringing the network to the customers, expanding geographically while still bringing service into individual commercial facilities,” said  Rob Shanahan, CEO of Lightower. “Today, network infrastructure is a critical component of an organization’s overall ability to perform and execute. This network expansion will allow Lightower to bring our high performance solutions to thousands upon thousands of new customers throughout Virginia, greater Washington D.C., and now also North Carolina.”

The network expansions also increase customer connectivity and routing options to Washington D.C., Baltimore, points north of Baltimore, as well as Washington D.C. metro data centers including those in the Ashburn area. Lightower offers all-fiber connectivity between the Ashburn area and the New York City area that is diverse from the I-95 corridor through its exclusive Transcom Route.

Over the past five years, Lightower has rapidly expanded throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Greater Chicago area, and has closed and integrated seven acquisitions.
