High-speed Internet

PS LIGHTWAVE’s Internet offering can support nearly every organization’s needs, with bandwidth ranging from 10 megs to over 40G.


Solutions Internet

By using Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) in our core network, we provide greater data protection and an additional layer of resiliency from potential failures. This full duplex and bidirectional Internet network provides the same level of bandwidth in both directions of the fiber simultaneously, ensuring both your upload and download rates are consistent—optimal for remote offices or cross-office collaboration.

Additionally, our Internet has the capacity to burst up to a higher bandwidth for a boost in speed when needed, allowing you to transfer large files without interruption. With switched fabric through PS LIGHTWAVE systems, we ensure greater connectivity within a switched, Layer 2 environment.
