FirstLight has been selected as the service provider for Westchester Century Country Club. FirstLight’s dedicated, symmetrical fiber-based Internet services are a considerable upgrade to the historic country club’s prior infrastructure which will provide members and staff with a more robust, efficient Internet connection.  Century Club spans 175 acres in Purchase, New York, and has been acknowledged as one of the top golf courses in New York State and the Metropolitan area by esteemed publications such as Golf Digest and The Met Golfer. Its clubhouse traffic picks up substantially on weekends, which is when the club was experiencing significant Internet latency and connectivity issues prior to switching to FirstLight.

“We were running on a cable Internet connection with antiquated equipment,” stated Century Country Club’s Controller, Lowell Moustakas. “We needed more bandwidth, particularly during peak weekend hours, to enable our staff and members to seamlessly access the Internet.  We’ve seen a substantial improvement in the speed and quality of our Internet connection since switching to FirstLight.”

The club’s new Internet connection was turned up in late Fall 2018, and they have been enjoying the benefits of FirstLight’s low latency, performance-oriented fiber optic network ever since.  FirstLight’s fiber-optic network offers the resiliency, scalability and high capacity that thriving businesses like Century Country Club require.

FirstLight has provided Internet access since 1999 with the philosophy that the greatest quality of service is provided not just by the highest possible connection speed, but also by combining superior peering arrangements and dedicated bandwidth delivered over a stable, fiber-based network. FirstLight’s Internet service is backed by a combination of Tier 1 provider connections and hundreds of private peering connections with the most trafficked sites throughout the Northeast, which lowers latency and improves the user experience.
