LiveOak Fiber, a regional broadband service provider, is making remarkable strides in enhancing internet connectivity across Glynn, Camden, and Chatham Counties. With an investment exceeding $100 million, LiveOak has laid over 1,000 miles of fiber, aiming to serve approximately 150,000 homes and businesses with a 100% buried fiber network. This significant infrastructure development supports the growing demand for reliable, high-speed internet in these coastal Georgia communities.

LiveOak’s commitment to the region extends beyond network deployment. The company has created over 100 new jobs, providing a substantial boost to the local economy. Ryan Moore, President and CEO of the Golden Isles Development Authority (GIDA), expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “We’re excited about the new jobs LiveOak continues to bring to our community here in Glynn County, as well as the transformative economic impact of broadband connectivity for both our residents and businesses alike.”

In a bid to bridge the digital divide, LiveOak Fiber is expanding its services to Tybee Island and the Bacon Park neighborhood in Savannah, Georgia. These areas, historically underserved due to their coastal proximity, will soon benefit from reliable internet access. Mayor Brian West of Tybee Island highlighted the significance of this development, saying, “By building a new, buried fiber network, we’re not just empowering residents; we’re enabling our local economy and businesses for sustained growth.”

LiveOak Fiber’s CEO, Jody Craft, emphasized the company’s mission to improve community life through enhanced connectivity. “The reason why each of us come to work each day is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. This is why we’re fully dedicated to the ongoing deployment of our fiber network across planned, existing, and prospective communities, to deliver an unparalleled broadband experience.”
