Lightower Fiber Networks has been selected to provide a diverse network solution by the Massachusetts Broadband Institute (MBI), a division of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, as part of its MassBroadband 123 initiative, a strategic network initiative which expands broadband and Internet throughout the state of Massachusetts. The Lightower network build will connect the MassBroadband 123 network to the major Internet connection point in Boston via diverse paths to further ensure network reliability.
The MBI will lease its fiber on two diverse paths of the Lightower network to connect the MassBroadband 123 network to a key Internet Point of Presence located in Boston. The additional path of the Lightower network will connect with MassBroadband 123, providing redundant and diverse pathways to the major Internet access points in Boston.
MassBroadband 123 is expanding high-speed Internet to over 120 communities in western and north central Massachusetts. This future-proof, fiber-optic backbone will provide the necessary infrastructure to bring innovative broadband technology to residents and businesses in the region as well as support Commonwealth of Massachusetts agencies throughout the western regions.
