Optical Communications Group, a competitive fiber provider, on Tuesday announced that its fiber services are available in 50 new buildings in Lower Manhattan.
Driven by the immediate need to help other service providers in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, OCG said it is able to reconnect networks to their previous carriers as well as add new connections.
While not revealing what providers it is working with, OCG did say that it has "partnered with major carriers in the area to provide voice and Internet services to customers in need."
Since OCG's "Manhattan BYPASS Network" was not affected by the storm, the service provider was able to provide new connection points to help get networks that had severe cable damage get back online.
