Washington County Gigabit Project: Phase Two Expansion
Supporting Growth and Prosperity!
has made a $6 million dollar private capital investment in Washington County to
build a one Gigabit Broadband direct fiber connection to more than 11,000 homes
and businesses. This sets Washington County apart as one of the select
number of communities across the country to have this level of broadband
Antietam’s Flight Gigabit product offers a synchronous service, 1 Gbps download and 1 Gbps upload, direct fiber-to-the-premises connection to a home or business. A gigabit equals 1,000 megabits per second and represents an enormous improvement in bandwidth available to consumers.
Phase One of the project is complete. Antietam’s Flight Gigabit direct fiber connection is available in Hagerstown’s City Center to over 6,000 homes and businesses, and makes Hagerstown the first privately-funded gigabit city in Maryland, and the 75th gigabit city in the entire United States.
Phase Two of the project is now underway and doubles the size of the Flight Gigabit footprint in Washington County. Antietam Cable is expanding the service to the Town of Boonsboro, MD and to additional areas in Washington County, MD to an additional 5 - 6 thousand homes and businesses. This expansion is scheduled for completion by autumn of 2017. Phase Three is now in the planning stages.
