Digital Broadband to Wire New York with High-Speed Services

Digital Broadband to Wire New York with High-Speed Services

By Jennifer Freer, Staff Writer

APRIL 19 ? Digital Broadband Communications announced it will deliver high-speed broadband capabilities to upstate New York businesses serving Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.

The expansion of broadband services into New York was part of the company's roll-out strategy.

The Waltham, Mass.-based company will use its Digital Broadband Communications Network, and by Fall 2000 the DBCN will be fully functional in upstate New York. Businesses may begin to select Internet access at speeds ranging from 144 kilobits per second (Kbps) to 6 megabits per second (Mbps).

The company will wire much of upstate New York with Digital Subscriber Line technology, and for businesses not reachable via DSL, the DBCN will connect them via frame-relay, T1 or ISDN.

Digital Broadband's teleworker solutions also offer New York businesses LAN-to-LAN connectivity and 24 hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week network monitoring and technical support.

The expansion into New York follows Digital Broadband's agreement with Rhode Island's Cooperating Libraries Automated Network to deliver high-speed broadband capabilities to 48 of the state's public libraries.

The company also has an agreement with the Massachusetts Corporation for Educational Telecommunications, now referred to as the Massachusetts Community Network. The MCN agreement selected Digital Broadband to provide high-speed Internet access to Massachusetts public schools, libraries, municipal offices and state agencies.
