Lumos, a fiber-optic internet and total home Wi-Fi service provider in the Mid-Atlantic, commemorated its launch in Goldsboro, N.C., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Dillard/Goldsboro Alumni & Friends HV Brown Hall.
The company, which was a recipient of a Growing Rural Economies with Access to Technology (GREAT) grant, will connect more than 15,000 underserved homes in the Goldsboro area, including nearly 100 percent within city limits. The connections will provide opportunities for residents to participate in the growing digital society.
In partnership with the Kramden Institute, Dillard/Goldsboro Alumni & Friends and the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, Lumos celebrated as the first fiber internet provider to more than 15,000 homes and small businesses in Wayne County.
In addition to its expansion efforts, Lumos will partner with the Kramden Institute to provide funding for a computer basics program, which will provide technology education, devices and technical support to individuals and families. Through this partnership, Lumos seeks to empower residents and small businesses with the tools they need to thrive in the digital age.
