New York, March 3, 2016 – Sabey Data Centers, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, announced today that Brooklyn Fiber, New York’s independent broadband ISP, will significantly expand its network resources by establishing a point of presence at Intergate.Manhattan, 375 Pearl Street.
John Sabey, President, Sabey Data Centers, said, “We are delighted to welcome Brooklyn Fiber to 375 Pearl Street. Their POP will enable them to access all of the carrier networks and Internet Exchanges at Intergate.Manhattan. This is a capability that was not available to Brooklyn Fiber during their start-up phase in Brooklyn. We’re proud to help grow this young company.”
Eric Veksler, CEO, Brooklyn Fiber, said, “Our goal is to provide equal access to quality, high-speed broadband for all. To that end, there are very few buildings that can disperse the Internet to all of New York City. We chose 375 Pearl Street for that purpose. We were also impressed with Intergate.Manhattan’s government-grade infrastructure, its mission critical systems and resiliency.”
Brooklyn Fiber offers both wireline and point-to-point wireless broadband connectivity to its residential and business customers. For example the ISP, with their highly disruptive business model, was the first to offer symmetrical gigabit service to small and medium sized businesses at affordable rates with no contract, no install fees and no termination fees.
Brooklyn Fiber’s gigabit broadband service is 20 times faster than existing download speeds in New York City, which average around 52 mbps. At present in New York City, gigabit service is rarely available, and broadband speeds higher than 300 megabits per second are highly uncommon. Brooklyn Fiber, in partnership with Sabey Data Centers and Integrate.Manhattan, is looking to change all that.
