This week: FirstLight Fiber’s Maura Mahoney, Chief Marketing Officer, and Patrick Coughlin, Chief Development Officer, talk about tackling the digital divide through fiber ‘onramps and off ramps,’ their work with local nonprofits and educational institutions.

This episode features Maura Mahoney and Patrick Coughlin with FirstLight Fiber, a digital infrastructure provider servicing enterprise and carrier customers on a 25,000 route mile fiber network. We discuss how the company’s middle-mile fiber network is helping bridge the digital divide “from Bangor to Buffalo,” how the company factors network stability into its buildout, the process of applying for NTIA infrastructure grants and more.
