Lightower Buys Veroxity
Boxborough, MA-based Lightower Fiber Networks, which owns and operates 4,500 miles of data-transporting fiber stretching from New England to Long Island, said today that it is acquiring Veroxity Technology Partners of Westford, MA. Veroxity operates about 2,000 miles of fiber in New England and New York City. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Lightower Fiber was formed in 2008 from the splitup of National Grid Wireless into Lightower Wireless and Lightower Fiber; it’s been on a buying spree for the past couple of years, also acquiring the fiber assets of companies like DataNet Communications and KeySpan Communications.
