ATLANTA, GEORGIA, US, October 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — eCommunity™ Holdings (“eCommunity™” or “eCommunity™ Fiber”), an open-access fiber infrastructure company formed by Antarctica Capital and A2D, Inc, is bringing a new, high-speed, fiber network to Clayton County, GA.
eCommunity™’s open access model enables homes and businesses in Clayton County to have access to a high-quality fiber network which all service providers can compete to sell services on, thereby improving consumers’ overall value and service quality. The company has partnered up with several internet service providers to provide ultra-fast, reliable, and affordable connections to homes and businesses.
eCommunity™ entered Clayton County in August of 2022 by purchasing 100 miles of underground fiber passing thru the cities of Riverdale, Jonesboro, Forest Park, Lovejoy, Morrow, Lake City, and suburban areas of Clayton County. Now, their mission is to aggressively expand the network, delivering fiber broadband services throughout all underserved areas of the Clayton County. Marketing has begun and eCommunity™ hopes to have its first wave of users connected by the end of the year.
In addition to bringing new consumer internet options, the eCommunity™ ClayCo network will enable connected households, that can’t afford internet access, to link directly to civic and community-based content. In partnership with local non-profit and civic agencies, eCommunity™ ClayCo will link citizens directly to digital community programs and content separate of their internet connection. Through these partnerships, access to virtual learning, telehealth, and digital workforce development will not be a function of affordability once connected to eCommunity.
Antwon Alsobrook, Founder & CEO of A2D and the eCommunity™ Model commented, “eCommunity™ was created to give everyone access to the digital resources they need. I know what it feels like to be disconnected. The internet is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity. Therefore, I remain passionate about bringing high-quality, reliable broadband access to communities that have been traditionally ignored or under-served. Clayton County is one of the fastest growing, yet diverse counties in Georgia. With the immense growth comes great responsibility wherein we must help ensure there is equitable access to the digital resources Clayton County citizens, small businesses and industry needs. As an Atlanta Native, I am looking forward to helping bridge the digital divide within Clayton County!”
