OTTC Brings FTTH to Upstate New York

  • Finger Lakes Technologies Group
  • Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone Companies (OTTC)

PHELPS, NY — Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone Companies (OTTC) announced that it has entered into an agreement to form a partnership with Oak Hill Capital to expand its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network across Upstate NY, bringing high-speed internet access to underserved markets across the region. With this partnership, OTTC is poised to become a leading FTTH network provider serving residential customers in Upstate NY.

This new initiative marks the second partnership between Oak Hill and OTTC. In 2017, Oak Hill acquired Finger Lakes Technologies Group (FLTG), a subsidiary of OTTC, which had successfully built a 3,000 mile-fiber network across Upstate NY to serve thousands of enterprise customers attracted to the resilience and high-speeds of FLTG’s modern fiber network.

In 2019, OTTC forged a partnership with Corning and introduced the FlexNAP fiber system into OTTC’s communications network, which allows for rapid and reliable deployment of fiber installation for residential use. “This partnership with Oak Hill, paired with our Corning partnership, has positioned OTTC for accelerated growth and geographic expansion in the next few years,” said Paul H. Griswold, president and CEO of OTTC.

In May, OTTC completed the FTTH upgrade of the company’s entire existing network footprint. In just two years, OTTC built more than 600 miles of fiber, driving a significant increase in FTTH subscriber installations to much higher levels than typically seen by local communications companies.
