FirstLight, a leading provider of digital infrastructure services to enterprise and carrier customers throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, has recently reached a significant milestone in its fiber network expansion in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
FirstLight initially announced its expansion into Pennsylvania in June of 2020, and has since officially reached the exciting milestone of 3,000 miles of fiber in Pennsylvania. The decision to expand into this area was in direct response to both customer and market demand for a quality option for fiber-based solutions. Ever since the expansion, FirstLight has been actively spreading its reach in the Commonwealth and has delivered its many services to a wide range of organizations across the state, including those in healthcare, financial services, education, government and carriers.
Pennsylvania is one of six states where FirstLights network spans and currently connects 200 locations, with the ability to connect an additional 12,000 locations. FirstLight’s network totals over 25,000 miles of fiber in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region, with plans to build more than 250 additional miles of fiber in Pennsylvania alone in the second half of 2022. FirstLight intends to continue its commitment to reach unserved and underserved areas throughout the commonwealth.
Chief Operating Officer at FirstLight and Pennsylvania resident, Doug Derstine, is thrilled to announce this exciting milestone. “FirstLight understands the importance of quality connectivity and the direct impact it has on economic growth, and we’re focused on expanding access to FirstLight’s high quality, reliable connectivity to support Pennsylvania organizations in this digital age.”
