MiCTA Selects Lightpath as an Approved Vendor for Connectivity Services


New York, June 26, 2024 - MiCTA, a national, non-profit group purchasing organization located in Saginaw, MI, has named Lightpath as an approved vendor for its Internet, Ethernet, Wavelengths, Dark Fiber, Private Networks, Voice, and all of the company’s managed service offerings. The Master Service Agreement will enable MiCTA members to purchase Lightpath's services at a discount.

“MiCTA is pleased to welcome Lightpath as an Approved MiCTA vendor,” stated Tim von Hoff, Chief Operating Officer of MiCTA. “A volunteer committee selected Lightpath through a highly competitive screening process to provide an array of the highest quality communications services to its members.” 

“For more than three decades, Lightpath has served as a fiber connectivity provider-of-choice in some of the most robust and demanding markets in the country," stated Doug Turtz, Chief Revenue Officer of Lightpath. "Our customers in the education, government, and healthcare sectors come to us for solutions that solve some of the most challenging connectivity needs. We are gratified to be able to bring these solutions to MiCTA members."

Lightpath's proposal was selected as part of MiCTA's rigorous RFP process, which evaluates products and services on behalf of its nationwide membership. MiCTA's master service agreements deliver substantial cost savings to its members and eliminate the need for MiCTA members to conduct their own expensive and time-consuming individual RFPs.

MiCTA membership is limited to public sector and nonprofit organizations. Lightpath excels in relationships with such organizations, including educational institutions, government agencies, and healthcare organizations.
