Optimum Lightpath, a division of Cablevision Systems, says it has connected more than 5,000 buildings to its all-fiber network that now spans more than 4,700 fiber route miles. The new milestone is a result of ongoing network investment to increase availability to mid and large market customers throughout the New York region.

Optimum Lightpath’s expanding network and evolving product set can support a broad range of usage demands. This includes Interactive Patient Care for the healthcare sector, an Education Services Suite for schools, 40 Gigabit and Low Latency Optical Transport Service for the financial services sector, and Internet Voice Bundle and Next-Generation Hosted Voice for mid-market and large businesses.?

“With one of the largest contiguous metro fiber footprints in the United States, Optimum Lightpath is able to offer dense coverage throughout the greater New York City metro,” said Brian Washburn, research director/Network Services, Current Analysis, in a statement.
