By the beginning of 2024, the company hopes to provide its fastest services to nearly 49,000 customers.
“We’re hoping with this, it’ll be a resurge; people will stay in the country, stay in the community,” Clark said. “They’ll have connectivity to the rest of the world. They won’t have to move closer to town or in town to have that same level of service that people in town have.”
The FastNet service is currently in parts of Clay, Noxubee and Choctaw counties.
