CenturyLink completed an expansion of its New York-area fiber loop, wrapping up construction on a new metro fiber loop in Greenwich, Conn.

The latest was the fifth in a series of expansions completed over the last year, including Stamford, Hartford and Norwalk, Conn., and White Plains, N.Y.

CenturyLink said the route expansions deliver business customers added network diversity and more capacity. The Greenwich metro fiber loop allows the company to add about 20 Class A office building to its on-net portfolio.

CenturyLink can now deliver up 100 Gbps for business internet and data, as well as enterprise services and products, including global networking, SD-WAN, and big data analytics.

"Our expanded network provides businesses in Greenwich with local network infrastructure and support alongside global connectivity, creating a gateway for information exchange across the region and around the world," Carl Bonitz, CenturyLink general manager for New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island, said in a statement.

The company’s fiber-optic network now extends for more than 450,000 route miles.
