Hylan announced today that Crosslake Fiber, a fiber optic developer throughout North America, selected Hylan to support the design, engineering and construction of its Lake Ontario fiber network leg in upstate New York. 

Hylan crews built 40 miles of newly-constructed fiber optic infrastructure at the shore end in New York state, which completed Crosslake Fiber’s Lake Ontario network. The network is the first system across Lake Ontario to directly connect Toronto, Canada, and Buffalo, New York, with dark fiber – providing an alternate route connecting Canada to the U.S.

“Hylan’s ability to be flexible and nimble in mobilizing experienced teams in the field nationwide quickly validated them as our partner of choice to complete our North American fiber optic network,” comments Mike Cunningham, CEO of Crosslake Fiber. “We were delighted to leverage Hylan’s full suite of fiber installation services from design to finished product on this critical corridor.“

“We were thrilled to be a part of this historic route that has changed the landscape of fiber optic connectivity across North America,” states Joe Cecin, CEO of Hylan. “Hylan is proud to have partnered with Crosslake Fiber to expand its critical telecommunications infrastructure that connects New York to Canada with our proven, turnkey capabilities and customer commitment.”
