PS LIGHTWAVE’s Internet offering can support nearly every organization’s needs, with bandwidth ranging from 10 megs to over 40G. We provide coverage in Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Waller, Montgomery, and Fort Bend counties.
By using Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) in our core network, we provide greater data protection and an additional layer of resiliency from potential failures. This full duplex and bidirectional Internet network provides the same level of bandwidth in both directions of the fiber simultaneously, ensuring both your upload and download rates are consistent—optimal for remote offices or cross-office collaboration.
Additionally, our Internet has the capacity to burst up to a higher bandwidth for a boost in speed when needed, allowing you to transfer large files without interruption. With switched fabric through PS LIGHTWAVE systems, we ensure greater connectivity within a switched, Layer 2 environment.

PS LIGHTWAVE strategically invested in a premium-quality, native Ethernet infrastructure to provide the greatest protection and redundancy for customers while minimizing losses in connectivity.
This native Ethernet utilizes optical fiber transmitted in a switched Layer 2 environment—an infrastructure that offers greater reliability, faster speeds and higher data density.
PS LIGHTWAVE’s switched Layer 2 environment provides greater Ethernet redundancy through its 50-60 data rings located throughout the high-speed network in the Greater Houston Area. These optical data rings ensure a protected switched fabric through a diverse secondary path between nodes, so even if there’s a break in the primary pathway on one of these protected rings, your connection will still be fully operational with less than 100 milliseconds of loss.
Benefits of PS LIGHTWAVE Ethernet Network:
- Switched fabric for better connectivity
- Low latency & hops for fewer service disruptions
- Burstability for more bandwidth and greater scalability
- Dedicated network secured using best practices
- Core network redundancy & reliability with ring protection
- Superior network with 100% optical fiber backbone
- 24/7 support with a local NOC

VoIP- Voice over IP
PS LIGHTWAVE’s VoIP Business Phone System Takes the Worry out of Missed Calls and Dropped Connections
PS LIGHTWAVE’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions offer multiple phone options for your growing business. Whether you need a standard phone system to handle voicemail, call waiting, call forwarding, call transfer or additional phone lines, or you want a unified communications platform that can integrate with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software, we offer multiple solutions to meet your evolving business needs.
Hosted VoIP managed phone services offer the call clarity and functionality business owners seek from a traditional business phone system, without the need to route calls or maintain phone lines. Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches replace wiring and additional infrastructure, which reduces capital costs while ensuring business continuity in the event of a power failure.
With our VoIP solutions, your company is able to streamline operations. Now you can connect geographically dispersed employees and devices on one unified phone system. Because calls are made over the Internet instead of over phone lines, the system becomes more portable, which means less expense over maintaining traditional wireline services. PS LIGHTWAVE’s hosted phone solutions can augment your existing on-premise solution, can be delivered over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, or via the Cloud. Because your VoIP solution runs over state-of-the-art native Ethernet network infrastructure, you receive the same levels of reliability, security, and low latency you’ve come to expect from PS LIGHTWAVE for an improved customer experience.
