Astound Broadband Joins DataVerge Ecosystem

Astound Broadband (Astound), a large U.S. cable provider, has joined the growing ecosystem at DataVerge, owner and operator of the carrier-neutral interconnection facility in Brooklyn.

Astound’s presence at the DataVerge facility offers New York-area enterprise and small business customers access to the company’s digital solutions and increases the number of carriers and network providers they have access to for high-speed, low-latency, reliable interconnection.

“The greater New York metro area is a key focus for Astound, and being part of the vibrant network at DataVerge’s expansive facility in Brooklyn offers area enterprise and small businesses access to our award-winning products and services,” said Patrick Knorr, chief commercial officer for Astound Business Solutions. “We have a heritage of providing business customers in New York with reliable connectivity and services backed by solid infrastructure, and our alliance with DataVerge is an integral part of strengthening our presence for businesses in the Tri-State area.”

DataVerge provides the New York area, the third-largest economy in the United States, with an interconnection advantage, including direct access to dark fiber, metro and long-haul transport providers.

Its carrier-neutral position also makes DataVerge an ideal ecosystem partner in Brooklyn, the most populous borough in New York City.

“Our core mission is to provide the best and broadest set of connectivity options to Brooklyn and Tri-State businesses,” said Ray Sidler, CEO and co-founder of DataVerge. “Astound’s presence continues the growth of DataVerge’s rich ecosystem, along with our more than 30 other carriers and network providers, further enabling us to meet the needs of the local business community.”
