Cleareon Fiber Networks says its network is now ready for service across the NYC metro region. The company has been completing a dark fiber footprint in and adjacent to Manhattan since rolling out in February. They have now moved quickly into lit services as well via a bit of M&A.
Cleareon has bought the assets of Pangaea Networks, an Ethernet and fiber operator that declared bankruptcy last year. They won the auction over the summer, and have quickly taken the company's existing PanMetro 10G Ethernet ring offering to market alongside their metro fiber capabilities. The move boosts Cleareon's scale significantly, and gets them into a position to hook up enterprises around the tri-state region.
New York and the surrounding metro area has been home to several new fiber companies over the last few years. Consolidation across the region opened some opportunities for players with local knowledge to step into the gap.
