The company plans to invest $57 million in the region over the next few years
WALLKILL, NY, January 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Greenlight Networks (“Greenlight”), the leading fiber-to-the-home provider in New York Stateannounced today that it is bringing its sought-after fiber optic internet network to the Hudson Valley, with multi-gigabit internet services becoming available in the City of Wallkill beginning of summer 2023. Over the next year, the company will invest nearly $9 million in building networks and infrastructure, providing jobs and business to local entrepreneurs. Over the next 5 years, Greenlight intends to invest a total of $57 million in the Hudson Valley region with its aggressive expansion plans.
Greenlight has planned to begin underground construction in the hamlets of Mechanicstown and Scotchtown in the spring of 2023, with aerial construction to begin in the winter of 2023.
“The Wallkill Town Supervisor has already proven to be a great partner in this expansion and, like our team, is incredibly excited about Greenlight coming to Wallkill. Together, we’re delivering superior speeds and competitive pricing to local residents, including our new game-changing multi-gigabit fiber services,” said Marc MurphyPresident and CEO of Greenlight. “We are delighted to welcome new customers to our growing network and look forward to strengthening our presence in Wallkillas well as other areas of the Hudson Valley region.”
Greenlight has identified the Hudson Valley region as underserved in terms of current fiber internet access. The company began working with local authorities in Wallkill in the fall of 2022 to obtain the necessary approvals and agreements required to begin construction. The company is now working closely with local utility companies to access utility poles, which will further increase the number of homes that will have access to Greenlight’s service offerings.
“Greenlight Networks is making a significant investment in Wallkill with the installation of its new fiber network and we are delighted. This will ensure that more of our residents have access to reliable, high-speed fiber optic internet service,” said George SerranoWallkill town supervisor. “This investment will bring greater value to homes in our community and give residents more choice when it comes to choosing an internet provider that’s right for them.”
All of Greenlight’s internet services, including the new 5 Gig service the company announced earlier this month, are symmetric, meaning upload and download speeds are the same. Symmetric Internet provides the most reliable and robust Internet connectivity with no latency or delay and supports maximum connectivity with a dedicated connection.
Residents of Wallkillincluding the hamlets of Mechanicstown and Scotchtown, will begin to see Greenlight Networks trucks, as well as those of its contractors, as construction activity expands throughout the community. Residents can visit Greenlight’s “What to Expect During Construction” page to learn more about Greenlight’s progress in their neighborhood and sign up to express interest and for construction updates. Once construction is complete, customers who have pre-ordered services will be advised to schedule in-home installation by a Greenlight Networks fiber technician.
