9. Lightpath Announces Three Boston-Area Deals
Lightpath Technologies, a fiber infrastructure connectivity provider, in June revealed not one, but three acquisitions that would bring it past its New York and New Jersey footprint and into the Boston area.
The company in June bought Cambridge Network Solutions (CNS), a second unnamed area connectivity provider, and fiber network assets from Hub Fiber. The CNS and the second acquisitions have closed, while the Hub Fiber purchase is expected to close shortly, according to the companies.
Altogether, Lightpath acquired over 80 route miles of in-place, high-count fiber network, which currently serve 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, Orlando, Fla.-based Lightpath said.
