Lumos to Invest More Than $56M to Expand 100% Fiber Optic Internet Access in New Hanover County and Wilmington, North Carolina

Lumos to Provide 655 Miles of 100% Fiber Optic Internet for Local Residents and Businesses

High Point, N.C. (April 4, 2023) – Lumos, a leading 100% Fiber Optic Internet and Total Home Wi-Fi
service provider in the Mid-Atlantic, announced today its $56 million investment to bring 100% Fiber
Optic Internet services to residents and businesses of New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington.

Through this expansion, Lumos will provide portions of Wilmington and Carolina Beach, as well as the
communities of Ogden, Myrtle Grove, Castle Hayne, and Wrightsboro, with 655 miles of the latest fiber
optic technology – bringing the community a network capable of delivering up to 385 times faster
upload speeds and up to 30 times faster download speeds than traditional cable.

“Lumos remains steadfast in its mission to deliver uninterrupted, accessible, 100% Fiber Optic Internet
that has the capacity for today’s Internet needs and that anticipates tomorrow’s,” said Brian Stading,
Lumos CEO. “We are committed to providing New Hanover residents with the best connection possible,
improving their quality of life.”

Fiber internet enables smooth operations of current and future technology needs. Innovations in
telemedicine, remote working or learning, video streaming, entertainment and more demand a reliable
and fast connection that traditional cables will not be able to provide.

The expansion highlights the company’s rapid growth and development plans as the third new market
for Lumos in 2023. For more information about jobs in the region, please visit

The engineering work will start in mid-2023. New Hanover residents will receive communication by mail
when this begins, and they can also sign up for email updates at
