Atlantic Broadband, the nation’s 9th largest cable operator, has announced the closing of its acquisition of the South Florida fiber network previously owned by FiberLight, LLC, an industry leader in providing high-performance metro and long-haul fiber transport services. Initially announced in January, the closing of this deal marks the addition of 350 route miles to Atlantic Broadband’s existing South Florida footprint, more than doubling its existing fiber footprint in the region while expanding by 30% its capacity to serve data center customers in the same geography.

FiberLight — a provider of mission critical high bandwidth networks customized for clients’ specific needs —  owns and operates deep fiber networks in over 30 metropolitan areas in the U.S. with a concentration in Texas, the Southeast, the Washington DC corridor, Mid-Atlantic markets and Bay Area. In the face of an ever-expanding, dynamic market, businesses turn increasingly towards cloud environments for their daily operations. With greater demand from end users comes a burgeoning need for greater bandwidth and reliability from businesses and carriers. Atlantic Broadband’s acquisition of Fiberlight’s South Florida footprint offers new and exciting opportunities for clients in the region as it allows Atlantic Broadband to leverage an expanded presence to bring faster, more reliable and scalable fiber connectivity to the bustling area from downtown Miami to North Palm Beach.
