To face the ongoing challenge of slow and poor-quality broadband and internet data throughout New York City, Skywire Networks was established in 2012. Most people don’t realize that the broadband density of New York City, the largest city in the world, is lower than Lagos, Nigeria. We affectionately call Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, NYC’s digital deserts, because so few commercial buildings are equipped with fiber or quality broadband.
Skywire Network has rapidly expanded its network to more than 1,800 “lit” buildings, providing internet and voice services to thousands of businesses in NYC. Our “near-net” reach is extensive and approaches over 100,000 commercial buildings which can be easily connected to our network.
If you are a business in NYC struggling with your internet or you own or manage a commercial Class B of C building in NYC and you are seeking better broadband solutions, please drop us a note or give us a call to see how we may help.
