Fiber-optic data center, cloud and unified communications services provider, FirstLight, has received the regulatory approvals required to complete its acquisition of PrimeLink. This transaction would enhance FirstLight’s position in New York’s North Country by expanding its presence in Plattsburgh, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Albany & the Lake Champlain Corridor and adds fiber capacity into Montreal, Canada.

Now that the transaction is complete, FirstLight will begin its integration activities. FirstLight stated it will have a focus on continuing the same high level of service and support that its clients have come to expect from FirstLight. PrimeLink’s former parent company, Champlain Telephone Company, will continue to operate independently.
