Tuesday Roundup: FirstLight, Empire, Brsk, Neos, PDG

August 8th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Some backhaul, some FTTx, and a bit of biomass energy:

FirstLight Fiber will be helping Aqua Comms with some terrestrial connectivity. FirstLight’s unique footprint in the northeast will enable diverse connectivity to Aqua Comms’ landing station in Lynn MA. The arrangement will enable connections not just down to NYC but also west to Albany and northwest to Montreal.

Empire Access is expanding to another market in New York’s southern tier. The rapidly expanding FTTH provider is moving into South Elmira, with construction expected to be complete this autumn. In January this year Empire closed on a majority investment from Antin Infrastructure Partners, which has helped fund their drive into new regional markets.

Over in the UK, Brsk has tapped Neos Network to help it expand its own rollout. Brsk is looking to provide FTTH connectivity within dense suburban areas, which have often not seen the investment others have. Brsk has 266K homes connected in Bradford, Lancashire, Manchester, and South Birmingham/West Midlands. Neos will be providing diverse national backhaul services.

And Princeton Data Group is turning to power from biomass sources in Indonesia. They have done a deal for renewable energy with Cikarang Listrindo to help power the company’s 30MW data center campus in Cibitung, which sits in the greater Jakarta metro area. PDG will start consuming power from CL’s mixed fuel plant this month. PDG is also finishing up a second campus in Jakarta, JC2, which will go live sometime this quarter.
