Lightpath Expands with Three Fiber Acquisitions in Boston

Continuing with its aggressive approach to enabling digital infrastructure for enterprises and the wholesale market, Lightpath just announced three fiber network acquisitions in Boston. This bolsters the company’s fiber network and presence and enables Lightpath to offer customers in region access to its comprehensive portfolio of custom-engineered connectivity solutions including Optical Transport, Ethernet, Internet Access, Private Networks, Dark Fiber, SD-WAN, Voice, Security Solutions, and other Managed Services

History in The Making

Lightpath becomes the first all-fiber, enterprise-grade connectivity provider to enter the Boston market since industry consolidation began over a ten years ago.

The three Lightpath Boston acquisitions include: 

  • Cambridge Network Solutions (CNS) – includes high capacity fiber throughout downtown Boston, Boston seaport, Cambridge, and the surrounding areas with established rights-of-way and construction capabilities that will accelerate building new network into additional service locations, as well as expanding the network to additional areas.  
  • An area connectivity provider
  • And the purchase of fiber network assets from Hub Fiber

All in all, Lightpath acquired over 80 route miles of in-place, high-count fiber network, which currently serves over 100 locations, including 12 area data centers, throughout Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Waltham, Burlington, Billerica, Bedford, and Lowell. Additionally, Lightpath’s network in the region will be connected to its New York Metro network, expanding on the company’s existing 18,000 route miles of fiber serving over 12,000 locations.  

“Greater Boston is a perfect expansion area for Lightpath, with its robust technology and biotech industries, financial services sector, world leading universities and research institutes, tech-savvy governments, and other enterprise businesses. This is the first step for Lightpath expanding beyond the NY Metro region after reliably serving thousands of customers there for over 30 years. We are excited to bring our network, connectivity solutions, and innovative customer service approach to more organizations. These acquisitions will help us hit the ground running, and we will be able to start serving new customers right away.” Chris Morley, CEO for Lightpath

“Boston customers know our team, the high level of customer service that we provide, and that we go the extra mile to ensure that they get the exact, custom network solution, and support, that they need. Add to this, our new, advanced high capacity network and services, and we can’t wait to get going in Boston.” – Doug Dalissandro, Chief Revenue Officer for Lightpath 

Additionally, customers will be able to utilize Lightpath services to connect between Greater Boston and the NY Metro Area, including over 65 NY Metro data centers, 8 cable landing stations, and all major cloud providers.
