Some new fiber infrastructure is being put in place in upper New England this season. FirstLight said yesterday that it is in the process of expanding its fiber network in one of the US’s most ignored infrastructure markets: Maine.
FirstLight is boosting its fiber footprint by 10% in the state. They are building out fiber in Biddeford-Saco’s downtown business district, bringing links of up to 100Gbps to businesses there. Biddeford and Saco lie on either side of the Saco River as it empties into the Atlantic 20 miles south of Portland.
And Portland itself is also getting some new fiber downtown. The expansion will reach down Middle, Fore, Commercial, and Congress streets, allowing FirstLight to offer fiber-based connectivity to a wider range of businesses.
