Hargray has been busy growing through acquisitions. It announced a number of deals in the southeast during the first three quarters of 2019:
In August, the company said that it will purchase Kings Bay Communications in Kingsland, GA. It plans to invest in the network and eventually provide 1 Gbps Internet, Hargray TV, “wall-to-wall” WiFi and home phone services.
Hargray made two announcements in May. It said it is had begun last-mile fiber construction in Conyers, GA. It is aimed at providing 100% fiber service to businesses in the community. It also closed its acquisition of Dark Fiber Systems, a provider in Jacksonville, FL.
In April, Hargray said that it is expanding its fiber footprint to business in Covington, GA. The move is the result of the acquisition of Dark Fiber. Earlier in the month, Hargray said that it had closed the acquisition of the Alabama assets of USA Communications. The network serves Pell City, AL and the surrounding areas.
In January, Hargray acquired three colocation facilities in the southeast. The aim is to provide services – including equipment racks, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security – to customers in Georgia, South Carolina and northern Florida.
