Lightower Buys Lexent

Boxborough, MA-based Lightower Fiber Networks, a bandwith service provider and operator of data-transporting fiber networks, said today that it is acquiring New York City-based Lexent Metro Connect, which provides custom-built dark fiber networks. The company is not revealing how much it paid for Lexent, but has said that the acquisition will expand its base in New York and New Jersey, adding more than 150 miles of fiber and 200 commercial buildings to the Lightower network. Lexent is Lightower’s second acquisition this year; in May the company purchased Westford, MA-based fiber operator Veroxity Technology Partners.
