Penfield, NY – August 19, 2021 – Greenlight Networks, the fastest fiber-to-the home provider in New York State, today announced expansion plans in the Town of Penfield. By year-end, Greenlight’s fiber-to-the-home broadband Internet network will reach more than 6,400 households in Penfield, more than tripling the number of residents in the town with access to Greenlight’s high-speed Internet service.
Greenlight is starting construction of its fiber network in 13 additional neighborhoods in Penfield. Construction is already underway in the Yorktown, Horizon and Hilltop Greenlight Districts. Once all 13 are complete, more than 45% of Penfield residents will have access to Greenlight’s high-speed Internet service by the end of this year.
“Speed, reliability, cost savings and customer service are what defines Greenlight Networks,” said Penfield Town Supervisor Tony LaFountain. “At a time when more residents are working and taking classes from home, it is imperative that they have a trusted service that is affordable from a provider who is recognized as a leader in the industry. Greenlight Networks is a key asset to our residents and small businesses for their internet services.”
Beyond residential neighborhoods, Greenlight Networks’ fiber Internet is in a number of Penfield buildings. Earlier this year, Greenlight Networks turned up service in the Bellagio Waterfront Marina apartments on the northern edge of Penfield. Within the upcoming month, it plans to have its Internet service in Ellison Heights apartment homes on Shady Run Lane.
“We are excited to announce the expansion of our network in Penfield, and to be working closely with Town, community and business leaders,” Greenlight CEO Mark Murphy “Our fiber network is an investment in the future of Penfield, advancing community by enabling residents to better learn, work and access entertainment from home.”
In addition to getting the most robust broadband available today, Greenlight Internet customers save money as Greenlight is less expensive and five times as fast as cable Internet, starting at just $50/month for 500 Mbps upload and download. Additionally, with fiber Internet customers can cut the cord with cable and stream their TV content with no buffering, offering a more reliable, lower-cost video and entertainment solution.
Greenlight Networks is holding a special “Back to School with Greenlight Networks” informational session for Penfield residents on Saturday, August 21 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. at Harris Whalen Park. Representatives from Greenlight will be at the event to provide information, answer questions and assist residents with placing orders.
