NorthState Continues Fiber Expansion in Guilford County and Kernersville

Symmetrical speeds of up to 1 Gig x 1 Gig are available now

HIGH POINT, NC (SEPTEMBER 16, 2020)—NorthState, a premier provider of fiber-to-the-premises internet for residences and businesses, is expanding its fiber optic network to additional areas in Kernersville and Guilford County.  With the expansion, NorthState will introduce service to select neighborhoods in the Brassfield area of northwest Greensboro, the Groometown area, Summerfield, and northern Kernersville.

“NorthState is excited to be expanding our fiber footprint during these challenging times so that more people in our community have fast, reliable fiber internet, which is necessary since so many of us work and learn from home,” said Karen Hoch, Director of Marketing Communications for Lumos Networks and NorthState.  “Our new areas of service represent several rapidly growing communities, and we plan to continue expanding service to other parts of Guilford and Forsyth Counties.”

“Fiber Internet from NorthState is unique because we provide not only the fastest in speed options (up to a gigabit speed), we also provide symmetrical speed as a standard offering. Symmetrical speeds send data going to and from the internet at the same speed, which is crucial for things like video conferencing,” Hoch added.  “In addition to offering lightning-fast internet, we are committed to outstanding, local customer service.”

“Access to high-speed fiber internet is crucial now more than ever for consumers and businesses alike,” Piedmont Triad Partnership President and CEO Stan Kelly said, “NorthState’s expansion in parts of Guilford and Forsyth Counties also is very appealing to businesses that are considering moving to or expanding in those areas.”
