June 23, 2022. Boonsboro MD Antietam Broadband is pleased to announce the first launch
of a multi-gig network in Washington County, MD. Antietam’s network, called Flight Fiber,
will allow both residential and business customers in Boonsboro access to increased gig
broadband. Flight Fiber provides speeds up to 2.3Gig with the flexibility to add more speed
in the future.
The new Flight Fiber network provides symmetrical upload and download speeds, enhanced
security, and reliability, and as always, no data caps or contracts. With this new network,
customers will have an enhanced experience with on-line learning, remote work, gaming,
and benefits to the multi-user home. As more devices in the home are connected, the need
for symmetrical speeds increases. A Parks Associate study released at CES 2022 showed
that the average home in 2017 had 9.6 devices connected, as of 2021 there were an
average of 14.5 devices connected. The Flight Fiber system will ensure that each connected
device enjoys increased functionality and will reduce latency.
Boonsboro is one of the few towns in Maryland, and the first in Washington County, to have
access to multi-gig speeds. To sign up for Flight Fiber customers simply need to contact
Customer Service for details.
“The launch of Flight Fiber underscores our commitment to Boonsboro and all of
Washington County”, said Brian Lynch President of Antietam Broadband. “Our fiber
network is designed to allows us to rapidly deploy technology as it emerges, all to the
benefit of our customers,” said Lynch.
“It’s exciting for Boonsboro to be one of the first in the county to enjoy a multi-gig
network,” said Howard Long, Mayor of Boonsboro. “I am thrilled that our residents and
businesses will have access to this cutting-edge technology”, said Long.
