The latest expansion will deploys new fiber optic cable or densify existing fiber services in Maryland across the Eastern Shore as well as Frederick and Montgomery counties.

The buildout includes $13 million invested in 2020 and $15 million in projects underway or planned for 2021, extending high-performance Ethernet, internet, advanced voice solutions and more to nearly 7,000 additional businesses.
