Metro Bytes: FirstLight, McAllen, FiberLight, EdgeConneX, Megaport

June 22nd, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Here's some metro and regional connectivity news to take a look at:

FirstLight Fiber has picked up another enterprise customer up in New Hampshire. Exeter-based R.E. Prescott Co has tapped the northeastern fiber operator for both internet connectivity and hosted voice services, with installation now complete. RE Prescott, which manufactures and distributes water and waste water systems, needed a provider that owned and operated its own network.

Down on the US-Mexico border, McAllen Data Center has expanded its footprint into two new border markets. Along with their flagship facility in McAllen they are now opening two facilities in Laredo and El Paso to the west. Last month FiberLight added a new fiber route along this path which hooks up the two new MDC facilities. MDC's stated goal is to add a few more along the border all the way to the Pacific, which suggests perhaps Yuma and San Diego might be on their drawing board at some point.

And EdgeConneX has followed through on an expansion of its partnership with Megaport. Megaport's elastic interconnection services are now available in EdgeConneX's facilities in Houston, Santa Clara, and Boston, and more such markets are on the way. The two announced they'd be doing this soft of thing in January, after first trying it out in Portland.
