Greenlight Networks is based in Rochester, NY. Rochester is one of the top 10 high-tech areas of the United States, and it has been a hotbed of telecommunications competition and innovation since the mid-90s.
Internet bandwidth is exploding again. Most experts predict that Internet bandwidth will grow 500% in just the next few years. Why? Look around any home, apartment, or dorm room today, and you’ll find the answer. iPhones, iPads, PCs, Xboxes, smart TVs and other devices that connect to the Internet are being used to download and stream TV shows, movies, and other videos.
Companies like Apple, Netflix, Hulu, Google, YouTube, and Microsoft are all creating wonderful ways for everyone to watch what they want, where they want, on almost any device imaginable. This generational change means that people will need far more bandwidth than today’s networks offer. The metal phone and cable wires connecting homes, apartments, and buildings are simply not as capable of sending and receiving information as fiber-optic cables.
While access to fiber is available in some of America’s largest cities, small and mid-sized cities have been overlooked up to this point. Because we live here, we think it’s time for the people of these communities to experience a better Internet experience over an all fiber network.
To provide all the bandwidth needed to meet this challenge, we build our own fiber connections to our clients, so we can provide an extremely fast and affordable Internet service. We also believe that when our customers use our ultra high-speed service, they will find exciting new ways to use the Internet for entertainment, in much the same way the Internet has evolved from when we used dial-up!
We can’t wait to see what our customers can do with this much bandwidth!
