Regional fiber service provider Clearwave Fiber will finish deploying fiber that will serve several thousand users in Peachtree Corners, GA, next month.
The new network will provide symmetrical multi-gigabit services to Curiosity Lab, a 500-acre “living laboratory” for academic, public and private sector organizations. It is located in historic Technology Park Atlanta, which according to a press release, was the state’s first research park. It was established in 1968.
The deployment is part of a much broader project that the company says eventually will bring service to more than a half million homes and businesses across its serving area.
“Our goal is to provide reliable, high quality, and secure Fiber services to a wide array of businesses here at Peachtree Corners. And we are really accomplishing that here,” Clearwave Fiber’s General Manager Derrick Grissom said in a press release. “We are proud of our work and look forward to becoming partners in the community for years to come.”
Clearwave Fiber has almost 6,000 route miles serving the midwest and southeast. It is active in Illinois, Kansas, Florida and Georgia.
The formation of Clearwave Fiber was announced at the beginning of the year. It is a joint venture that is majority owned by Cable One. It includes that company’s Clearwave Communications subsidiary and some assets of Cable One’s Hargray Communications subsidiary. Other participants in the JV are GTCR, Stephens Capital Partners, The Pritzker Organization and “certain members” of the joint venture’s management team.
The organization said that it would invest heavily when it was formed. It’s been true to its word.
- In May, it announced plans to move into neighborhoods in Murphysboro, IL.
- In April, the operator said it would provide service to residential neighborhoods in Harrisburg and Herrin, IL.
- In March, the company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire RG FIBER, a fiber network service provider.
