By: Open Broadband, LLC
The operations of the entities will be merged, and the operating staff will be joining Open Broadband.
"We are excited to expand into South Carolina through the addition of the GlobalVision fixed-wireless business," said Open Broadband CEO Alan Fitzpatrick. "The team brings a strong background in serving residential and business customers, and expands our capabilities for voice, data, and data center services."
Open Broadband, LLC provides hybrid fiber and fixed-wireless internet service, up to gigabit speed, to many communities across North Carolina. Service is provided to residents, small and medium sized businesses, technology incubators, universities, and government locations including police, fire, town hall, and airport facilities. Open Broadband also provides free public Wi-Fi zones in downtown areas, parks, and campuses, as well as low-income communities in Goldsboro and Charlotte.
"Open Broadband is an outstanding company and wonderful people to work with," said GlobalVision owner David Funderburk. "We have a shared mission of customer service, and bringing affordable high-speed internet to underserved areas."
"Providing service to underserved communities is in our DNA," said Alan. "We are a co-founder and board member of the 501(c)(3) NC Broadband Matters Inc., an advocacy group for broadband in North Carolina and creator of the NC Hearts Gigabit project. We provide service to low income communities in many of the markets we serve."
With the merger of operations, Open Broadband plans to invest in equipment for faster fixed-wireless internet speeds and to expand data center capabilities.
