We’re an award-winning regional provider with one of the largest and densest footprints in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, and we’re ready to show you why.

Your “future organization” will thank itself.

Low Latency

You can count on us.

Our lit services offer nonstop, reliable communication with ultra-low packet loss, latency, and jitter. How do we know? Because we built the network ourselves. We own and operate it, too.

Get Up to Speed on Latency

What is latency and why does it matter? Our Executive Briefing explains it all.


High Capacity

No growing pains here.

WSKG Case Study

Network capacity matters. Lucky for you (and us), the FirstLight network was built with that in mind. Our high-capacity fiber optic network can scale with your business, ensuring seamless communication and adaptation to evolving technological demands without bottlenecks or slowdowns.

Dedicated Bandwidth

Sharing isn’t always good.

Never share your bandwidth with other businesses. You should only accept full-rate capacity as specified for both upstream and downstream; that’s the kind of service you’ll always get from us.

Symmetrical Connections

The same speed, up and down.

Symmetrical bandwidth ensures balanced speeds for smooth communication and efficient data handling. We believe this should be the norm, so it is. It comes standard with all our connectivity solutions.

Local Support

We’re locally managed and operated.

That means if you’re in the Northeast or mid-Atlantic, we’re not just a phone call away, we’re footsteps away. Maintenance and repairs are coordinated directly from multiple Network Operations/Support Centers throughout our region. No tricks, gimmicks, or overseas support.
