While the summer may be a time of relaxation for some, this is not the case for Lexent Metro Connect. Lexent, a leading provider of dark fiber networks in the New York Metro area, has used this summer to continue diligently working on expanding their network. Already this year, Lexent has expanded into a number of key carrier hotels in and around New Jersey and New York City including their latest build outs – a riser cable at 300 Boulevard East connecting Savvis and Telx and a fiber pull into 4 Worlds Financial. These expansions are a direct response to the growing demands from Lexent’s customers.
Sitting strong among the world's largest global backbone providers, Tinet's IP backbone ranks sixth among the top 15. The top 15 in order of rank include: Sprint, Level 3, Global Crossing, Savvis, TeliaNet, Tinet, NTT, MCI/Verizon Business, TATA, AT&T, Telecom Italia, Qwest, Cogent, Cable & Wireless and PCCW. This is a tremendously strong position for the Italian HQ company. It was less than a year ago that Tinet was bought by BS Private Equity and separated from its former parent Tiscali. The year has proved Tinet a success as it continues to climb the rankings charts.
