Greenlight Networks is expanding into the town of Chili and hopes to bring gigabit internet services to more than 4,000 additional homes in the community by the end of 2023.

Greenlight, the leading fiber-to-the-home provider in New York, and is making a $6 million investment in infrastructure development in the community, with construction underway in several North Chili neighborhoods.

The company is partnering with the Chili Fire Department to house its network equipment at station No. 2, enabling the continued build-out of services.

“When we founded Greenlight in 2011, we set our sights on expanding our high-speed fiber internet services to communities throughout the state, including here in our hometown of Rochester,” Mark Murphy, president and CEO of Greenlight, said in a news release. “Today, I’m thrilled to see that we are acting on that promise and increasing access to the community of Chili.”

Greenlight is currently available to nearly 2,000 households in Chili. Infrastructure is expected to be completed this month to bring an additional 1,000 households aboard in the Bright Oaks and Shetland neighborhoods this month, with an another 3,000 households in the Battle Green, Brentwood, Hilltop and Mapleton neighborhoods joining the network by the end of 2023.

“We’re pleased to see that Greenlight has recognized our town and our residents’ needs for high-speed internet service,” Chili Town Supervisor David Dunning said. “The demand has grown, especially as Greenlight’s reputation has increased here in Rochester. We knew that bringing access to our community would have such a positive impact on residents and potential homebuyers.”

100,000 households now connected to Greenlight

Greenlight Networks, the Henrietta-based fiber broadband internet service provider, has reached the 100,000-household milestone in New York.

Greenlight continues to expand in four metropolitan areas: Rochester, Buffalo, Binghamton and suburban Albany. The company expects to bring service to another 30,000 households before the end of 2022.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the community’s growing support and for the municipalities, who recognized how critical high-speed internet is for their residents’ livelihood and lifestyle needs,” Mark Murphy, president and CEO of Greenlight, said in a news release. “In many ways, this is a great milestone for both our company and our customers alike.”

The build-out of the fiber network accelerated in March, when Oak Hill Capital acquired majority interest in the company and committed up to $300 million in investment.

Greenlight’s internet service costs $50 and provides synchronous speeds (500 Mpbs for download and upload).

“We are seeing more customers streaming, managing multiple devices and looking to completely ‘cut the cord’ from cable TV,” Murphy said. “Over the coming months, we will further expand our coverage into new areas to better serve the needs of New Yorkers across the state.”
