More than 53,000 additional families and businesses will have access to ultra-fast, gig-speed internet in 2023.
High Point, NC (Feb 9, 2022)—In a rapidly continuing expansion of its ultra-high-speed fiber internet service, NorthState announced upcoming growth into new communities of Alamance, Guilford, Orange, and Wayne Counties in North Carolina, adding more than 53,000 homes and businesses and more than 800 miles of fiber to its network by mid-2023.
“We are so excited to bring ultra-high-speed fiber internet to these North Carolina communities,” NorthState CEO Diego Anderson said, “NorthState will make additional announcements as we continue the expansion of our future-proof network. We are also committed to supporting our entire footprint with 100% fiber-to-the-home access, a project that is underway and planned for completion next year.”
NorthState’s fiber-optic network will be available to approximately 39,000 addresses in Alamance County and neighboring Guilford and Orange Counties including the towns of Burlington, Gibsonville, Elon, Whitsett and Mebane as well as many surrounding communities. In Wayne County, the new fiber-optic network will cover the majority of Goldsboro – about 14,000 homes and businesses.
“Consumers will immediately notice the difference that a 100% fiber-optic network provides,” NorthState Chief Customer Officer Jay Winn said. “Our performance-built network delivers not only gig-speed download speeds but also the gig-speed upload speeds needed for today’s ultra-high-bandwidth applications such as online gaming, glitch-free video conferencing, and back-up to the cloud. It’s simply the fastest internet available.”
The announcement was met with widespread support from local leaders eager to have a next-generation fiber-optic network to enable the gig economy in their communities.
Construction will begin this summer, and some communities will have access as early as fall 2022. Residents in the expansion areas will receive communications by mail before construction begins and again when the service is available to order.
