Lexent Metro Connect Provides Fast and Reliable Dark Fiber Services, Even Through New York City’s Annual Construction Embargo
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lexent Metro Connect, the leading provider of dark fiber networks in the New York Metropolitan area, today announces its continuing commitment to 30-day timelines for dark fiber installations in Manhattan, even during New York City’s annual holiday construction embargo. To assist in less traffic disturbances during the busy holiday season, the New York City Department of Transportation restricts street and sidewalk construction from November 24th through January 2, 2009, from 6 a.m. to midnight. As a result, Lexent Metro Connect’s trained professionals will often work in the early morning hours to ensure timely dark fiber installations for their clients while being mindful of the embargo.
Every year, the construction embargo makes it difficult, if not impossible, for other fiber-optic installation firms to begin and complete new installation projects on timely schedules. However, Lexent leverages its own proprietary dark fiber network and its force of over 300 service professionals to continue its timely construction throughout the holiday embargo. Whereas competitors who rely on third-party contractors will typically require months to build a dark fiber network, Lexent’s workforce needs only thirty days or less, a boon to customers whose network installs commence during the winter months in Manhattan.
“Lexent Metro Connect owns and maintains its own dark fiber network, a distinct benefit to telecom carriers and enterprise customers seeking scalable, flexible, and affordable network options and last-mile connectivity,” states Ray La Chance, President of Lexent Metro Connect. “Lexent’s dark fiber, combined with the key relationships we’ve developed with New York City’s infrastructure, enables Lexent to deliver virtually unlimited bandwidth in thirty days or less, regardless of the restrictions that commonly hamstring other players in the field.”
Lexent is a leading provider of dark fiber network engineering and maintenance solutions to major telecom carriers and business enterprises in the New York area. We provide connectivity to Carrier-Neutral facilities, enabling Freedom of Choice in pursuing wholesale buying of Network Services.
