MaxxSouth Broadband has deployed a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) 1 Gigabit Internet service in Oxford, MS. The initial phase of the project will serve approximately 3,000 homes; expected completion is early 2017. Over the next few years, MaxxSouth plans to build out FTTH service areas throughout Lafayette County completely.

Oxford is the third city in Mississippi where MaxxSouth has deployed fiber. In 2015, the company launched FTTH in Starkville, and in 2014, it launched in Carthage. In March, the company upgraded its video and Internet services in Forest and Morton, MS.

MaxxSouth provides video, high-speed Internet and digital phone in 20 counties and 60 communities in northern Mississippi and Alabama. The company currently has approximately 83,000 subscribers for broadband services and passes 110,000 homes. The company is a subsidiary of Block Communications, which also owns Ohio-based cable operator Buckeye Broadband.
