HIGH POINT, NC–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of a rapid and continued expansion of its ultra-high-speed fiber Internet service, NorthState announced upcoming growth in new communities in Alamance, Guilford, Orange and Wayne counties in North Carolina, adding over 53,000 homes and businesses and over 800 miles of fiber to its network in 2023.

“We are excited to bring ultra-high-speed fiber internet to these North Carolina communities,” said NorthState CEO Diego Anderson, “NorthState will make further announcements as we continue to expand future-proofing our network and committing to supporting our entire footprint with 100% fiber-to-the-home access, a project underway and scheduled 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 cities of Burlington, Gibsonville, Elon, Whitsett and Mebane as well as many communities surrounding. In Wayne County, the new fiber optic network will cover the majority of Goldsboro – approximately 14,000 homes and businesses.

“Consumers will immediately notice the difference that a 100% fiber optic network provides,” said Jay Winn, chief customer officer of NorthState. “Our capable network not only delivers blazing-fast download speeds, but also the blazing-fast upload speeds needed for today’s ultra-high bandwidth applications, such as online gaming, wireless video conferencing, problem and cloud backup. It’s simply the fastest Internet available.

The announcement was met with broad 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 select 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.
