$12.5 Million Project to Start this Spring
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 28, 2022 – IQ Fiber, Northeast Florida’s only local residential fiber-optic internet service provider, announces it will begin construction on a 10 gigabit-capable fiber-optic network throughout Atlantic Beach, Florida. Construction on the 100% fiber-optic internet project is slated to begin this spring.
“Atlantic Beach residents will finally have a smarter choice for high-speed broadband,” said Ted Schremp, CEO of IQ Fiber. “We are building not just a network that is purpose-built for the modern internet, but also providing a streamlined and simplified customer experience that removes the hassles consumers endure today.”
Construction consists of the installation of underground conduit and fiber-optic cables that extend from the core internet backbone directly into individual customer’s homes, allowing for the fastest internet speeds available while supporting the explosive growth in internet usage and demand. With average broadband usage increasing over 25% per year in the US, demand has increased for the symmetrical speeds, reduced lag time and massive network capacity that fiber offers.
“We welcome IQ Fiber to Atlantic Beach and are very pleased that fiber-optic service is being made available to our community,” said Atlantic Beach Mayor Ellen Glasser. “I’m certain our residents and businesses will appreciate having a new choice for internet service – and that the service is being provided by a local company.”
IQ Fiber is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida and is bringing high-speed, state-of-the-art 100% fiber-optic internet to areas of Northeast Florida that do not currently have access to modern, symmetrical broadband services. In addition, IQ Fiber is hiring over 60 local management, field and support staff.
IQ Fiber offers simple month-to-month rates with no hidden fees, surcharges or surprise price increases. IQ Fiber’s three service plans deliver symmetrical internet speeds between 250 and 1,000 Mbps, and whole-home Wi-Fi service with a simple app to manage connections and settings.
