Greenlight Networks Expands into the Town of Rotterdam, Reaches More Capital Region Customers with Affordable Fiber Internet

Greenlight Networks investing over $6.5 million and Partnering with Rotterdam Fire District to bring its high-speed fiber internet to residents

ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (MARCH 19, 2024) – Greenlight Networks, the leading fiber-to-the-home provider in New York State, announced today an investment of over $6.5 million to offer its sought-after fiber network to residents of the Town of Rotterdam. This network expansion will give the company the ability to connect more than 6,700 homes to Greenlight’s high-speed network by as early as summer 2024.

“Part of Greenlight Networks’ strategic growth efforts across the state involve listening to residents and prioritizing communities who express interest in our service the most. We’ve heard Rotterdam residents loud and clear – they’re ready for us. We’re happy to say we’re coming and redefining what ‘connectivity’ means in the process,” says Mark Murphy, CEO of Greenlight Networks. “Rotterdam neighbors may have already seen our Greenlight trucks on their streets, which is a sign that construction is underway, and our service is coming soon. We encourage people to sign up for service so we can get them on the list for installation as soon as possible.”

With construction beginning, Greenlight anticipates service availability for the first 2,700 homes this summer. The first neighborhoods slated for service include Carman Park, Crestwood, Careleon and Greenpoint. Additional neighborhoods will be added to construction planning later this year.

“Rotterdam residents have been patiently waiting for this expansion news. Across the board, our residents need—and want—greater connectivity,” said Mark Eagan, President & CEO of The Capital Region Chamber of Commerce. It goes without saying that we’re excited to welcome a high-speed internet provider like Greenlight Networks to our community. We’re pleased to see that Greenlight is ready to invest in the future of Rotterdam and look forward to seeing how fiber internet will positively impact our neighborhoods.”

To support the expansion’s infrastructure, Greenlight has partnered with the Rotterdam Fire District 2 on Curry Road to host its network equipment in exchange for complimentary high-speed fiber broadband service at the fire department.

“We’re happy to partner with Greenlight and host their equipment at the station. This will help more of our neighbors gain access to vital internet services,” said Dean RoncaFire Chief of Rotterdam District 2. “Greenlight has a great reputation for being both affordable and reliable. We’re ready to see them take it to the next level and bring more options for residents here in Rotterdam.”

Rotterdam residents can now visit Greenlight’s Neighborhood Page to learn more about the company’s construction progress and service availability. Residents are encouraged to sign-up to express interest. Once construction is completed in their neighborhood, customers that pre-ordered services will be notified to schedule in-home installation by a Greenlight Networks’ fiber technician.

Along with access to multi-gigabit fiber services, the expansion will also provide Rotterdam residents with access to Greenlight’s Total Managed Wi-Fi. The fully managed service launched last fall and allows Greenlight’s customers the ability to wirelessly connect devices throughout their home through the use of a professionally designed, implemented and supported wireless network service. Greenlight’s team monitors the home network remotely for added peace of mind. Customers can add Total Managed Wi-Fi to Greenlight’s affordably priced internet services for as little as $5 per month.

All of Greenlight’s internet services – including the new 5 Gig service – are symmetrical, which means the upload and download speeds are the same. Symmetrical internet provides the most reliable and robust connectivity without latency and delays and supports maximum connectivity with a dedicated connection.

More than 27 municipalities across the state now have access to Greenlight’s network, including communities in Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, Binghamton and the Hudson Valley region. The addition of Rotterdam will further fuel Greenlight’s growing presence in the Capital region as more than 5,000 households in Clifton Park and Malta now have access.
