Jan. 10, 2024
The new fiber build will offer customers access to up to 5 Gbps symmetrical speeds, streaming video, and Wi-Fi throughout the home.

Glo Fiber has made its fiber broadband service available to initial Spring Garden Township, Pennsylvania neighborhoods.

Having already begun construction, the company expects the fiber build to be completed by the end of 2024, providing over 4,500 homes and businesses with fiber-based internet service. As construction continues, residents will receive advance notice via mail, and they can check availability or sign up for service at www.glofiber.com.

Customers will be able to access symmetrical 5 Gbps speeds. Glo Fiber’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network is coupled with parent company Shentel's 9,300-mile regional fiber network, allowing it to deliver high-speed services with low latency and greater reliability.

"For the past two years, we have been very active working with York County municipalities to bring fiber to residents and businesses," said Chris Kyle, Vice President of Industry and Regulatory Affairs at Shentel. "Spring Garden Township is another key piece in our growth plan for the area.”

Coupled with the fiber-based service, Glo Fiber offers Glo TV streaming services and phone services are also available. Also, it is offering a Wall-to-Wall Wi-Fi service.
