Lightpath Lights More Than 7,000 Locations Throughout New York Metro Area 
Continues Charge to Bring 100 Percent Fiber Network and Growing Suite
of Managed Collaboration, Voice, WiFi and Backup Services to More
Mid-Market Businesses 
JERICHO, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/14 --  Lightpath(R), a market
leader in Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York
metropolitan area businesses, today announced that its expansive 100
percent fiber network now connects more than 7,000 locations and
spans more than 5,800 fiber route miles. The latest adds, almost half
of which include locations in New Jersey, represent ongoing efforts
by Lightpath to bring fast, high-quality and reliable
telecommunications services to more mid-market organizations. In the
past year, more than 1,000 new locations have been brought onto the
company's network.  
More medium-sized businesses are supporting cloud applications,
mobile devices, video conferencing services and other
bandwidth-intensive activities. This is especially true for the
professional services market that spans business services,
engineering, accounting, finance, insurance, real estate and law.
These businesses increasingly need help supporting critical IT
services, such as voice, collaboration, WiFi and backup, as the
latest feature sets and capabilities drive management complexities.
Lightpath responds with an evolving lineup of managed services that
add significant value to the company's core Internet and voice
"Lightpath is bringing more services, value and cutting-edge
connectivity to more businesses as it expands ever further into key
regions that need a powerful fiber network to support increasing
demands," said Julia McGrath, senior vice president and chief
strategy officer for Lightpath. "With one of the densest fiber
networks in the country, Lightpath is helping to ensure that more
businesses than ever are positioned to capitalize on a range of new
opportunities, driving success." 
Spectraserv, an environmental services company based in Kearny, New
Jersey, has experienced firsthand how a premium telecom connection
can open the door to more opportunities and increased flexibility.
The company's diverse workforce of 100 managers, engineers,
scientists, mechanics, drivers and laborers all had increasingly
demanding technology needs that could not be met by existing telecom
providers. In order to roll out the latest cloud-based software,
deploy a virtual private network to remotely support mobile teams and
take advantage of the latest technologies as they became available,
Spectraserv needed much more bandwidth. 
"As our business grew and changed over the years, we found ourselves
in need of a fiber-based telecommunications service that could
support our high-bandwidth needs, but there were absolutely no
options in our area," said James Miele, owner, Spectraserv. "We
talked to Lightpath about what we needed and they invested in
building fiber all the way to our building. We felt the difference
immediately. Bandwidth is no longer a limiter, it is an enabler that
gives us the freedom to deploy new technology as soon as we're ready
for it. This would not have been possible without a top quality
network to support us."
