ATLANTA FiberLight, LLC, a fiber infrastructure provider with more than 20 years of construction experience building and operating mission-critical, high-bandwidth networks, announces that Jim Lynch, Executive Chairman of FiberLight, will serve as the company’s interim Chief Executive Officer until a permanent CEO is appointed.

FiberLight enables companies delivering high-capacity networks with dense and diverse fiber requirements, particularly for enterprise businesses adapting and enabling digital transformation.

To meet the connectivity demands and network growth requirements of its customers, FiberLight continues to densify its already robust Texas and Virginia networks. These expansions are driven by regional MNO and WISP tower expansions, hyperscale-owned data center connectivity requirements and multiple hyperscale conduit and diverse fiber route use cases. The company’s high-capacity lit and dark fiber footprint now spans 10,350 route miles in Texas and 700 route miles in Virginia, providing customers diverse connectivity and enhanced fiber capabilitiesall while allowing them to bypass congested existing fiber routes.
