Regional internet service provider and broadband network operator LiveOak Fiber announced its intent to acquire fiber network assets in Georgia's Glynn and Camden Counties from Alma Telephone Company (ATC) Broadband, a telecommunications company based in Alma, Georgia. The strategic acquisition of ATC’s fiber network assets in these two counties allows LiveOak to strengthen its service delivery capabilities throughout the Golden Isles of Georgia’s Southeast coastline in Glynn and Camden County Georgia, and will bring the advantages of fiber broadband services to residents and businesses in these underserved counties.
The network assets LiveOak is acquiring from ATC were built to provide high-speed fiber network services to medical and business communities throughout Glynn and Camden Counties.
“Over the past several years, ATC has recognized the need for reliable residential broadband services in Glynn County and Camden County,” said Teddy Solomon, CEO of ATC Broadband. “This acquisition is a boon to the community. We are confident that LiveOak Fiber has the local resources, experience, and enthusiasm to take our network and expand it in a way that ensures both communities gain access to the best possible broadband experience.”
As a result of the acquisitions, county residents and businesses will be offered broadband packages that start at 500 Mbps and go up to 10 Gbps, include premium managed Wi-Fi services minus contracts and data caps.
Jody Craft, president at LiveOak Fiber, said, “The acquisition of this ATC Broadband fiber asset reinforces our commitment to serve the Golden Isles and enables LiveOak Fiber to expedite our timeline for buildout in Glynn County and expands our service area to include the businesses and residents of Camden County. We will build upon the great work of ATC by offering the highest quality Internet services and speeds in the region, coupled with superior local customer service."
