LiveOak Fiber based in Georgia, is one of the emerging regional broadband service provider building a world-class network to deliver world-class services, announced recently that the newly formed company is reportedly investing $60 million to construct and operate a next-generation high-speed fiber optic network in Glynn County. The new network will bring alternative options to underserved regions, ensuring access to affordable and reliable digital infrastructure for businesses and residents in the area.
When complete, LiveOak Fiber’s network could provide fiber-based broadband internet and communications solutions to serve homes and businesses throughout its digital footprint. Residents can expect a robust internet service with 10G per second – the fastest speeds in the U.S.
“The people of Glynn county are underserved and lack the critical infrastructure and services needed to foster both a growing population and attract new businesses,” says Jody Craft, President of LiveOak Fiber. “Building out this much needed infrastructure and services in Glynn County will be a true game changer. Efficient, modern communications for education, healthcare, local businesses and residents is going to change lives for the better.”
Construction on the project is planned for later this year. LiveOak expects to begin connecting their first customers as early as February 2023. With plans and commitments to hire locally, they expect the project to create 50 new jobs in the County over the next three years. The move is prompting positive reactions across the community.
“We welcome businesses to Glynn County,” said Walter Rafolski, Commissioner, At-Large Post 2, Glynn County Board of Commissioners. “Growing industries are a vital ingredient to the business community here. This is also an excellent opportunity for the unincorporated areas of the county to get internet service.”
