DAGSBORO — Mediacom Communications announce the completion of construction to bring ultra-high-speed broadband to underserved areas of southern Sussex County.
More than 1,500 homes and businesses in the south-central section of the county now have access to broadband download speeds as fast as 2-gigabits-per-second.
Mediacom was awarded one of three grants through the inaugural round of the Delaware Broadband Infrastructure program for the Sussex County project.
Construction of the 155-mile fiber build began in July 2022 and was completed ahead of schedule.
A total investment of more than $11 million was put into this public-private partnership to extend broadband access for underserved Delaware residents. Residents and businesses in an area that extends north to south from Georgetown to Gumboro and east to west from Dagsboro to Laurel can now access a variety of service offerings including broadband plans with 2-gigabits-per-second download speeds as well as low-cost phone plans.
Mediacom also offers Connect2Compete-Plus (C2C+) for low-income households and participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
