Skywire Networks, an Ethernet provider in New York City, plans to significantly scale its wholesale and channel partner activities, starting with the launch of a partner portal.
Subsequent to a significant capital raise completed last summer, the company has now hit a new milestone – it has lit its 450th building and has now published its own near-net footprint of 20,000+ commercial buildings.
“We are incredibly excited to announce our plans to accelerate our wholesale and channel activities. Unlike most fiber providers that have focused exclusively on midtown and downtown Manhattan Class A commercial buildings, our NYC coverage area covers most of Brooklyn, Queens and those parts of Manhattan which have poor fiber density,” said Alan Levy, CEO of Skywire Networks.
He added, “With continued consolidation in the telecom space, there is a shortage of quality carriers that can provide wholesale SLA Ethernet private line access to buildings and businesses throughout NYC. Skywire is excited to help our partners fill this void in the marketplace.”
Skywire sells both wholesale Ethernet private lines to other carriers as well as Skywire-branded voice and data services to channel partners and agents. A key component of this effort is the launch of the company’s Partners Portal. Registered users will be able to search for a NYC building by entering the service address and will immediately determine if Skywire can provide high-speed connectivity and the associated monthly recurring charges.
Skywire’s NYC portal includes Skywire lit buildings (Type 1), Skywire partner fiber buildings (Type 2), and Skywire near-net buildings. In all, it publishes a building list of more than 60,000 NYC commercial buildings which covers essentially all of NYC.
