To bring its fiber-optic network to the northern part of York County, Virginia, Glo Fiber, a subsidiary of Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel), has announced an agreement with county officials for construction to start in in the beginning of 2023. The network expansion will ultimately provide 100% fiber network services to nearly 5,000 homes and businesses in York County.

"The Internet has become a vital tool for everyone, from students to homeowners to businesses. York County is happy to welcome Shentel's Glo Fiber network as an option for our community's communication needs," commented Tim Wyatt, director of information technology at York County.

Using Shentel's 7,400-mile regional fiber network, Glo Fiber can ensure high speeds, low latency, and fair pricing. The company has earned a reputation for providing superior local customer service across its markets, including the growing list of communities in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

Glo Fiber provides fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) internet access, streaming TV, and phone service in the Mid-Atlantic region, with optional wall-to-wall Wi-Fi service that allows customers to connect anywhere in their home or business. Using WiFi 6 technology, customers can enjoy faster speeds, higher performance, and better support for multiple devices throughout the home with the assurance of advanced protection and automatic updates.

Glo Fiber will offer three tiers of symmetrical, high-speed internet access, streaming TV, and unlimited local and long-distance phone service to the area. Glo TV service is delivered via an app and is compatible with Apple TV, Amazon's Fire Stick, and many smart TVs with embedded streaming software.

"York County is a diverse community with many of its residents running small businesses, attending nearby academic institutions, and serving in our armed forces. We're proud to help better meet their communications needs by bringing Glo Fiber's connectivity to this market," said Chris Kyle, VP of Industry and Regulatory Affairs at Shentel. "We look forward to providing high-speed internet and exceptional customer service as we broaden our offerings to the Tidewater region."
