Our fiber network will allow customers to enjoy reliable and fast internet so they can successfully work, go to school, and even visit with doctors via telemedicine appointments.”
Construction on the fiber lines began in 2018 for Clinton businesses, which will gradually expand until the entire city has access to high-speed fiber internet.
