Lightower Boosts Philadelphia Business With New Data Center

Fiber network provider Lightower Fiber Networks is expanding its East Coast business with a new data center in Philadelphia. The new facility at 1309 Noble Street, has an estimated 30,000 square feet of high security colocation space for expanded services offered by the company.

“Lightower has seen a growing demand in the Philadelphia market from organizations that rely on colocation solutions for network operations, like redundancy and business continuity. We have also seen a surge in demand for colocation in order to connect to cloud providers and cloud services,” Phil Olivero, CTO, Lightower said in a statement. “We view this new facility at 1309 Noble Street as providing flexibility for both enterprises and service providers that require colocation in the Philadelphia market. Additionally, this site features 24x7x365 on-site support as well as ultra-availability capabilities, both of which are offered due to specific customer requests.”

Lightower’s new Philadelphia colocation facility is expected to be available at the end of the first quarter of 2017. The location serves as an extension to Lightower’s 50,000 square-foot facility at 401 North Broad Street in Philadelphia. For more details about the company visit
