Slated to serve parts of Buffalo by 2021, Greenlight Networks says high-speed internet should be available to nearly 10,000 homes, according to WKBW.

“There is clearly a demand and need in this community as more than 14,000 Western New Yorkers have visited our website and expressed interest in our faster fiber Internet service,” said Mark Murphy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greenlight Networks.


“This was reinforced when the pandemic hit and the impact it has had has demonstrated to everyone the importance of having fast and reliable internet. During this time when we have all been forced to work and learn from home, we have seen an increase in demand for our high-speed Internet services and are pleased to announce our initial expansion plans in the Buffalo area.”

Data speeds available on Greenlight claim to reach up to 2 GBPS, with a base speed of 500 MBPS, costing $50 a month for the fiber-optic network.

“Greenlight is building a new network here in Buffalo, not riding an existing one. We are bringing a new technology to this market that enables higher speeds. Constructing a fiber network is an arduous process and involves significant design, planning and construction work to lay hundreds of miles of new fiber-optic cable, which supports much higher data transmission speeds than traditional networks. Parts of this process are reliant on the utility companies, municipalities and homeowners and we plan to keep the community informed of our progress as we build out our network.” -Mark Murphy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greenlight Networks
