Authorities have announced that the state of Delaware will spend a million dollars to deploy a new fiber optic communication link that will connect Seaford Georgetown and Lewes. Governor Jack Markell said that he hopes the project could be completed by the end of 2015.
The network is aimed to connect the remaining pockets in the state that do not have access to high speed telecommunication
networks. Fibertech will build the data system for businesses and Internet providers who can then buy access.
The new line is expected to serve businesses before providing high speed to residential areas. The new fiber optic link is expected to go as far east as Cape Henlopen High School and move along Delaware 9 and Route 404 before reaching Seaford.
Fibertech Networks is a leader in providing fiber-optic based network services throughout mid-size cities in the Eastern and Central regions of the United States. Fibertech was founded in May of 2000, has built metro-area fiber networks in 30 mid-size markets in the Eastern U.S., and is led by Court Square Capital Partners of New York, N.Y.
