Spectrum expanding high speed fiber-optic internet to northeast Alamance County

Residents and businesses in Alamance County’s rural northeast region now have access to gigabit-speed Spectrum internet service.

Earlier this month, Spectrum announced a service expansion into rural areas of the county including Saddle Club, Union Ridge and Mount Vernon Church roads. With the service expansion comes Spectrum Internet Gig, a fiber-optic internet connection with download speeds of 1 gigabit per second.

“Spectrum’s newly constructed fiber-optic network buildout in Alamance County is part of the company’s approximately $5 billion investment in unserved rural communities, which includes $1.2 billion won in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) RDOF auction. The company’s RDOF expansion will provide broadband access to approximately 1 million customer locations as estimated by the FCC across 24 states in the coming years,” the company said in a press release earlier this month.
