FairlawnGig announces Expansion and Service Availability Beyond Fairlawn City Limits

Leading Fiber Optic Broadband Provider Answers Call from Organizations and Residences to Provide World-Class Internet Service to the Region

June 20, 2018, Fairlawn, Ohio – Today FairlawnGig announced it will now provide service beyond the city limits to include communities within the Greater Akron Region. FairlawnGig has been providing internet service since the winter of 2017 and has rapidly become the go-to provider for Fairlawn’s internet needs.  Currently FairlawnGig delivers a staggering 100 gigabit connection to business customers and a 10 gigabit connection to households, with dedicated service that does not waiver or degrade during peak usage hours.

“Every day we’re approached by organizations as well as households in the region asking to bring our world-class service to their communities,” explains Ernie Staten, Deputy Director of Public Service at City of Fairlawn Ohio. “Until now we’ve been focused on Fairlawn but are pleased that just eighteen months after we started serving Fairlawn in the winter of 2017, we’re able to expand to surrounding communities.”

FairlawnGig’s internet service provides the fastest available broadband connection at rates a fraction of the price that commercial carriers charge. Established as a regional economic development infrastructure advantage, FairlawnGig’s overwhelming adoption rate has led the organization to be able to bring ultra-fast broadband’s benefits to surrounding communities (for a reasonable build fee).

“We’re thrilled to be the rising tide that raises all boats and brings economic opportunities and innovation to the region,” says Staten. “Communities like downtown Akron and Medina County can now harness the business-attracting and growing engine that is ultra-fast internet service.”

FairlawnGig customers also receive the added benefit of being directly connected to reliable, affordable cloud services via dedicated fiber.
