Press Release

June 21, 2022 — LUMBERTON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following the announcement of its plan to deliver lightning-fast fiber-optic internet service to the Hardin County city of Lumberton, Highline is rapidly progressing through its next phase of mainline construction in preparation for connecting unserved and underserved residents to its reliable gigabit-capable network. The company projects construction to be completed in the Heights neighborhood first in early July, with Silver Crest coming up next and other Lumberton neighborhoods soon to follow. New customers are expected to be installed and connected later this summer. Through these expansions of its fiber-based internet service in Lumberton, as well as in Silsbee and Sour Lake, Highline aims to position itself as the premiere service provider of choice among communities and businesses eager to access, at long last, real high-speed internet.

At the core of Highline’s ongoing mission is to make a measurable difference in the lives of people who have been hindered or outright left behind by inadequate—or nonexistent—internet speeds. Highline’s future-proof and affordable Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) service will drastically improve education, health care, economic development, remote work, and overall quality of life for families, students, and employees throughout Lumberton. Partnering with towns, cities, and counties to connect thousands of dwellings across the United States, Highline will effectively close the digital divide, enhance opportunities, and enable full and equal participation in an increasingly online world. Furthermore, as opposed to the offerings of other service providers, Highline’s internet services carry no annual contracts and no throttled speeds—meaning that each customer has unlimited data and unlimited capacity for streaming and downloading, all thanks to the state-of-the-art fiber-optic network Highline is actively deploying.

Highline prioritizes the customer experience and promotes the “Highline Way” of doing business, which entails connecting customers to a reliable high-speed network that ably fulfills all their internet-related needs and then backing that service with a dedicated, caring team of local, US-based customer-support specialists.

Scott Borel, a native of Southeast Texas and Highline’s Operations Manager for the Texas/Georgia/Kansas region, shared his enthusiasm about the project’s progress: “We’re excited about the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received from so many of the people of Lumberton! We’re definitely gathering momentum, so be on the lookout for more information about timelines in your area—and spread the news that state-of-the-art, high-speed fiber internet will be here soon!”

While construction progress continues in Lumberton, residents are strongly encouraged to sign up for service by visiting or speaking with a Customer Experience Specialist at 888-212-0054. Additionally, residents who are willing to market the service to their community and persuade others to get onboard should join Highline’s Neighborhood Champions team—which can be done by indicating their interest over the phone or by sending an email to In return for their time and efforts, Neighborhood Champions will receive various benefits as well as a behind-the-scenes perspective on Highline’s fiber builds.
