WOW! notes fiber broadband market expansion milestones in South Carolina, Florida

March 6, 2023
The regional BSP has a goal to bring its all-IP fiber network to 400,000 homes passed in new service areas by 2027.

Broadband services provider WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone (NYSE: WOW) in February announced that the company has gained significant momentum in meeting regional expansion goals by leasing a facility in its Greenville County, South Carolina market, and by welcoming WOW! veteran Dominick Silvio into the role of director of operations for the BSP's Greenville, South Carolina region.

Concurrently, the BSP announced that further construction is in progress for its fiber broadband networks in Seminole County, Florida, serving the towns of Wekiwa Springs, Casselberry and Forest City.

Each of the milestones is an announced part of the company's ongoing market expansion, with a goal to bring its all-IP fiber network to 400,000 homes passed in new service areas by 2027.

Dominick Silvio returns

Dominick Silvio is returning to WOW! as its regional director of operations in Greenville County, S.C. Silvio previously spent more than 18 years with WOW!, most recently in 2021, supporting the company's Chicago, Evansville, Huntsville, and Knoxville markets.

In the new position, Silvio will play a critical role in overseeing the launch of WOW!'s operations in Greenville County as it prepares to offer its fiber services to new communities.

Silvio commented:

"I'm thrilled to join the dedicated team at WOW! as the company executes on its Greenfield expansion plans and demonstrates continuous momentum. We are extremely excited and fortunate to be able to offer residents of Greenville County the opportunity to enjoy our innovative products and quality service, supported by an award-winning customer care team."

In addition to welcoming Silvio, WOW! has also acquired a new field operations and warehouse facility in Greenville County to support its expansion in the area, beginning with construction in Mauldin, S.C.

WOW! anticipates its services will become available in parts of Greenville County soon.

Fiber network builds continue in Seminole County

In Seminole County, construction of WOW!'s high-speed fiber network is progressing rapidly in the towns of Wekiwa Springs, Casselberry and Forest City on the heels of WOW! adding its first fiber Internet customers in nearby Altamonte Springs.

Residents in these Seminole County communities will soon be able to subscribe to WOW! fiber services, which include symmetrical Internet speeds up to 5 Gbps. Subscribers will receive the necessary equipment upfront to get started on WOW!'s network along with WiFi at no extra cost, unlimited data, and no annual contracts. Among its suite of products, WOW! will also offer WOW tv+, home phone plans, WOW! mobile service powered by Reach, and platforms for businesses.

Robert DiNardo, corporate SVP of market expansion at WOW!, concluded:

"Since announcing our first three greenfield markets just last year, we're pleased to report that we've made significant progress towards bringing WOW!'s fast and reliable services to our Central Florida and Greenville County communities. We'd also like to extend a warm welcome to Dominick Silvio as he rejoins the WOW! team to lead our Greenville County operations. Together we look forward to providing the best options and clear value to residents and businesses as a trusted community partner."
