Washington County Gigabit Project: Phase Two Expansion
Expansion to New Areas of Hagerstown Just Announced!
Supporting Growth and Prosperity!
has made a $6 million dollar private capital investment in Washington County to
build a one Gigabit Broadband direct fiber connection to more than 11,000 homes
and businesses. This sets Washington County apart as one of the select
number of communities across the country to have this level of broadband
Antietam’s Flight Gigabit product offers a synchronous service, 1 Gbps download and 1 Gbps upload, direct fiber-to-the-premises connection to a home or business. A gigabit equals 1,000 megabits per second and represents an enormous improvement in bandwidth available to consumers.
Phase One of the project is complete. Antietam’s Flight Gigabit direct fiber connection is available in Hagerstown’s City Center to over 6,000 homes and businesses, and makes Hagerstown the first privately-funded gigabit city in Maryland, and the 75th gigabit city in the entire United States.
Antietam Broadband recently announced the expansion of Phase 2 of its Flight Gigabit service to new areas within and north of the City of Hagerstown, MD. With this expansion, the network will pass over 20% of the homes in Washington County. This comes only one month after the initial Phase 2 plan was announced to extend Flight Gigabit in the Town of Boonsboro, MD. The Boonsboro project should be finished by late July 2017. Work on the expanded Hagerstown system should be finished by the end of September 2017.
