Nearly unlimited NYC bandwidth at an affordable price

Whether you want to deploy new network-intensive applications, peer with other research institutions, or enhance your disaster recovery framework, NYSERNet’s New York City Metro Dark Fiber Network has you covered.

With our dark fiber, you can meet all your current network services needs and position yourself to gracefully – and economically – scale to meet your users’ evolving needs.

We built this custom fiber network so our members can take advantage of a survivable and scalable infrastructure that’s cost-effective and reliable. We offer routed fiber loops that connect to area data centers, commercial Internet providers, and diverse colocation facilities – including our own Colo@32.

NYSERNet’s Dark Fiber Network was built with the same type of fiber assets used by major telecommunication carriers, but ours is entirely controlled by our members. Together, we select, acquire and manage the equipment used to light the fibers and deliver unparalleled – and affordable –performance.

Use our Dark Fiber Network to hand off data traffic among your own sites, to other network participants, or to network and application service providers. You also can take advantage of NYSERNet’s statewide optical network to extend your high-speed networks to our Central New York data center, which you can use to implement sophisticated disaster recovery and business continuity strategies.
