4 Reasons PS Lightwave Is the Best Choice for Greater Houston Area Business Internet


Fast, high-quality Internet isn’t just nice to have; it’s crucial for the survival of modern businesses. That’s why business leaders in the Greater Houston Area trust PS Lightwave to provide superior high-speed Internet connectivity backed by locally-based, expert customer support. 

Our 100% fiber-optic network spans approximately 5,500 route-miles throughout nine counties in and around Houston. It’s our mission to deliver connectivity solutions that meet the unique needs of each of our customers, and our Houston-based team of experts is here to optimize uptime and service performance, no matter what. 

In this blog, we’re diving into the top four reasons Houston businesses choose PS Lightwave over other Internet service providers (ISPs) for superior Internet connectivity. 

1. Reliability & Redundancy

PS Lightwave Internet is highly reliable, with two border routers housed in separate data centers and connected to multiple upstream providers. With 100+ Multi-Gigabit Ethernet rings, we offer built-in redundancy, security, and sub-2ms latency. Additionally, redundant uplinks to our Metro Ethernet core ring allow us to provide high capacity across our network, so you can rest easy knowing your business is always connected.

2. 100% Fiber Optic Network

With over 5,500 Fiber route miles, including over 1,600 lit locations and 3,300 on net locations, PS Lightwave is the largest locally owned fiber optic network in the Greater Houston Area. Additionally, burstable bandwidth provides flexibility that allows your network to accommodate temporary usage surges without slowing down, allowing your team to continue delivering fast, excellent service – even during peak periods.

3. Faster Speeds

Broadband and cable Internet solutions top out at 500 Mbps1 and are asynchronous, which means their upload speeds are slower than download speeds. Our high-speed business Internet is delivered over a 100% fiber infrastructure, allowing for lower latency, fewer hops, and symmetrical upload and download speeds. In fact, we’re proud to provide Internet that reaches speeds up to 100 Gbps – more than 10 times what other Houston Internet providers offer.

4. Local Support

Unlike most ISPs who often opt to outsource their customer service, but not us. At PS Lightwave, we know the value of responsive support, which is why our customer support team operates 24/7/365 out of our Houston-based Network Operations Center (NOC). We know the Greater Houston Area and are always nearby to solve any issues or answer any questions you may have.
