ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 21, 2021) – Summit Broadband, a leading fiber-optics telecommunications provider in Florida, announces it will invest more than $100 million during the next 12 months to deliver Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) services to more than 60,000 homes lacking adequate broadband speeds required to fully utilize technology for work, education and other needs in today’s digital world.
“This current project represents a transformational opportunity to provide critical services. We are fully committed to delivering fast, secure and reliable connectivity to as many homes in Florida as possible,” says Summit Broadband’s CEO Kevin Coyne. “We will be future-proofing them with leading technologies and speeds that other service providers are unable to deploy as they are burdened with outdated products and architecture.”
Design work for the next FTTH initiative is already underway, and the company anticipates identifying and announcing the first project area before the end of the year.
“As we move forward on this initiative, we will begin reaching out to the local communities to announce upcoming project areas,” says Coyne. “In the meantime, we are working on strategy and design to ensure optimum performance and superior customer service.”
Summit Broadband has earned a reputation as a leader in offering the fastest speed available to customers, with a strong track record across the state, including a recently announced residential fiber project currently underway in Polk County.
