Lexent Metro Connect Builds and Maintains Some of the Shortest Dark Fiber Routes Between New York and New Jersey

Secure Routes Connect Key Financial Data Centers and Carrier Hotels in the NJ Metro Area

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  Lexent Metro Connect, a leading provider of dark fiber networks in the New York Metropolitan area, announces today that its dark fiber routes connecting New York and New Jersey are some of the shortest routes available in the industry. These short routes are a boon for the wholesale carrier and financial sectors that require lowest latency connectivity from financial data centers in New Jersey to leading carrier hotels in and around Manhattan.

Lexent is aggressively deploying dark fiber routes across New Jersey including interconnectivity between 5851 West Side Avenue in North Bergen, 755 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, 165 Halsey Street in Newark, 1400 Federal Boulevard in Carteret and 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken. These routes are part of Lexent's over 100 on-net enterprise and carrier hotel buildings in and around the New York metro area. Lexent's diverse footprint also includes two river Bore crossings across the Hudson River into New York City for additional security and maximum route diversity.

In today's competitive, automated trading markets, milliseconds can mean the difference between securing the best price available or possibly missing a transaction completely. This can translate between the gain and loss of millions of dollars. Lexent's secure and fast dark fiber connectivity is becoming an essential component to financial entities looking for the best trades possible.

"Our experienced team prides itself with delivering custom solutions, tailored to meet the stringent demands from our clients across the trading industry," states Ray La Chance, President and CEO of Lexent Metro Connect. "As financial clients require fast connectivity between their servers and major Exchanges, as well as rapid installations to stay competitive, we've engineered our New Jersey network to accommodate their specifications. In today's fast paced market, our customers need the best possible routes to stay competitive."
