LiveOak Fiber, a regional internet service provider and broadband network operator, today announced that the company has completed its acquisition of the Glynn and Camden Counties fiber network assets from Alma Telephone Company (ATC) Broadband, a telecommunications company based in Alma, Georgia.

The acquisition of ATC’s fiber network assets in these two counties allows LiveOak to strengthen its service delivery capabilities throughout the Golden Isles of Georgia’s Southeast coastline in Glynn and Camden County Georgia and will bring fiber broadband services to residents and businesses in these underserved counties. Residents and businesses can expect packages that start at 500 Mbps and go up to 5 Gbps, including managed Wi-Fi service minus contracts and data caps.

Over its decades of telecommunications service experience, ATC’s robust network and customer service have successfully competed against national service providers in South Georgia. ATC said it looks forward to maintaining a portion of its customers and interests in this space and continuing to harness the healthy relationships that the company has built over time.

Teddy Solomon, CEO of ATC Broadband, commented:

"The network assets LiveOak is acquiring from ATC were built to provide high-speed fiber network services to medical and business communities throughout Glynn and Camden Counties. We believe LiveOak Fiber has the local resources, experience, and enthusiasm to take the ATC network and expand it in a way that ensures both Glynn County and Camden County communities gain access to the best possible broadband experience."

LiveOak Fiber said it is committed to investing in the communities it serves by delivering the digital infrastructure needed for students, teachers, remote workers, residents, office workers, entrepreneurs, and local organizations that drives economic growth and supports thriving communities. Residents and business owners can visit the LiveOak website to check availability in their neighborhoods.

 Jody Craft, president at LiveOak Fiber, remarked

“The completion of LiveOak Fiber’s acquisition of ATC Broadband’s network assets expedites our timeline for buildout in Glynn County and expands our service area to include the local businesses and residents of Camden County. LiveOak Fiber is bringing high-speed internet that can keep up with the device-packed lifestyle throughout Golden Isles, Georgia."

As reported by BTR in February when the deal was announced, the network assets which LiveOak Fiber has acquired from ATC were originally built to provide high-speed fiber network services to medical and business communities throughout Glynn and Camden Counties.

LiveOak Fiber cites itself a telecommunications company "dedicated to bringing faster and better internet to the Emerald Coast of Florida and the Golden Isles of Georgia." The following recent video from the company interviews LiveOak president Jody Craft.
