FirstLight Fiber, a leading fiber-optic bandwidth infrastructure services provider operating in New York and Northern New England, announced today that Derry Medical Center, the oldest and largest independent, primary care Family Practice in New Hampshire, has selected FirstLight for a significant network upgrade across its entire facility, which includes five locations in the towns of Derry, Londonderry, and Windham, New Hampshire. In addition to fiber-based Internet connectivity, FirstLight provides the medical center reliable voice services.

FirstLight’s dedicated, symmetrical Internet service combines high connection speeds with a unique, industry-leading design that enables FirstLight to offer a superior solution.
