Kingston, New York – August 16, 2022 – Archtop Fiber, a newly founded provider of symmetrical multi-gig, fiber Internet and phone service to residential and business customers in historically underserved communities across the Northeast, today announces its leadership team, initial market strategy and capital partnership. Archtop was formed by a team of well-known industry thought leaders, former colleagues and long-time friends. Their mission: to create a world-class, multi-gig internet service provider that brings fast, reliable, environmentally friendly and affordable Internet access to underserved or overlooked markets over a 100%-fiber XGS PON network.
Headquartered in Kingston, New York, and founded by industry veterans with multiple successes in developing broadband businesses, Archtop Fiber’s leadership team includes Jeff DeMond as Chairman and CEO, Lenny Higgins as President and COO, Shawn Beqaj as Chief Development Officer and Diane Quennoz as Chief Customer Officer.
Led by CEO Jeff DeMond, Archtop was formed in partnership with Post Road Group, a digital infrastructure and real estate investment platform, which plans to invest up to $350 million in the company to accelerate fiber expansion throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond to reach over 500,000 homes and businesses across the region.
“I’m a serial entrepreneur with a history and passion for undertaking things others won’t, and doing so with a deep compassion for communities often overlooked by the telecom establishment,” said DeMond. “Archtop will be the long-awaited ‘shot in the arm’– not just as the best broadband Internet service provider for homes and local businesses, but as a true community member and partner. We have always been an invested creator of jobs, a catalyst for economic growth and a corporate partner with a passion for ‘leaning in’ wherever needed.”
