Lightower Fiber Networks will add over 100 route miles of new fiber through several major expansions of its industry-leading all-fiber network in Central and Northern New Jersey. The expansion will spread throughout the counties of Bergen, Hudson, Essex, Morris, Middlesex, and Mercer.

Lightower’s New Jersey network expansion program is in direct response to the surging demand for fiber-based networking solutions from Garden State financial institutions, enterprises, educational institutions, and government agencies. With this expansion, Lightower’s network now reaches from New Hampshire and Albany in the north, to Princeton, New Jersey in the south. Customers will have immediate access to Lightower’s complete suite of end-to-end fiber networking solutions including Ethernet, wavelengths, dark fiber, Internet access, video transport, private networks, and SONET.

Lightower has rapidly expanded in the New Jersey and New York City area over the past several years. In addition, Lightower announced the completion of a new network route across the Hudson River that bypasses the now under-construction Tappan Zee Bridge.
